What is the Fringe Button?  Where can I buy it?

All attendees must display their button in order to enter ticketed theatre performances or to receive any special discounts. No exceptions.

The Fringe Button is a pin that grants holders access to all festival events and benefits. This one-time purchase costs $5 and acts as entrance to the festival, enabling holders to purchase individual tickets and ticket passes, as well as to receive great discounts throughout the festival at all of the businesses listed below. 

To get maximum value and use from your button, purchase it as soon as possible at our online ticketing page and at Fringe Box Offices during normal hours. Buttons and tickets for any show can be purchased at box offices at each venue, open 30 minutes before the first show every day until 15 minutes after the close of the final show scheduled, as well as online with your ticket purchase.

We will also sell the discounted buttons at our events throughout the spring, summer, and fall. Stay up to date by liking us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Why a Button?

At Charm City Fringe, we pride ourselves on giving artists the opportunity to keep 80-100% of the revenue from their ticket sales. We believe it is important that artists be rewarded for their hard work, and likewise, audiences can trust where their money is going. 

Buttons are one of the Charm City Fringe Festival's sole sources of income. Your purchase of the $5 festival button ensures that Charm City Fringe is able to keep operating and providing artists and audiences across Baltimore with exciting and new entertainment and educational initiatives!

Uses and Perks
