San Francisco Fringe Festival Returns for its 26th Season This SeptemberSabrina Wenske and Cara McClendon of Naked Empire Bouffon Company in You Fucking Earned It, part of the 2017 San Francisco Fringe Festival. This September, the San Francisco Fringe Festival returns for its 26th season presenting a bold line-up of eclectic theatrical offerings for adventurous and open-minded audiences of all persuasions. With the entirety of the festival's programming determined through a non-curatorial lottery, the Fringe is an open access performance platform and, this year, brings together a wild collection of 30 productions from local and non-local companies and artists.

Often over-the-top and under-the-radar of traditional theatre-going fare, the Fringe champions the motto No Risk, No Art and has its rabid devotees and wins more fans every year. Most performances run under one hour and it all takes place under one roof, allowing audiences to march venue to venue, seeing as many shows as possible in a single day.Logan Smith in Stories Hardly Worth Telling, part of the 2017 San Francisco Fringe Festival. This year's San Francisco Fringe Festival runs September 8 through 23, 2017 with performances all days except Mondays at San Francisco's EXIT Theatreplex located at 156 Eddy Street in the Tenderloin.

For complete listings of shows and curtain times, patrons can visit sffringe.org or call the Fringe Hotline at (415) 673-3847. Tickets are $12 (at the door, cash only) or less per show with a ten-show Frequent Fringer pass available at $85 and a five-show pass available at $45. Advanced ticket sales are available through the Fringe website.
