Help us make adventurous art happen! Support Minnesota Fringe and our artists by volunteering with the front-of-house team in this year’s festivals.

The Minnesota Fringe Festival is an 11-day performing arts festival in the Twin Cities Metro. Over 600 performances are hosted in 11 venues, showcasing the work of 119 companies.

That’s a lot of adventurous art! To make this all happen, Minnesota Fringe relies upon volunteers to run the box office, usher, and assist with crowd control. Each year, more than over 250 volunteers step up to serve in 2000+ front-of-house volunteer shifts over the course of the festivals.

That’s where you come in! In return for your help, Minnesota Fringe will shower you in gratitude, a swanky t-shirt, Fringe swag, and free tickets to see performances.
