Becoming 100% inclusive.


Most Fringe venues are handicapped accessible with the Spiegeltent being accessible to wheelchairs and motorized scooters.

A promise for 2017 and beyond: The Fringe has created an Accessibility Committee charged with improving the Fringe experience in all our participating venues and communicating to people with disabilities what each venue offers in terms of accessibility. To Karen Zandi and all the Mary Cariola Center volunteers, a sincere thank you for your commitment and support in helping us assess and update Fringe venues.

If you have a question or require assistance in regards to a particular venue’s accessibility, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

While in Rochester, here’s something that will make your Fringe experience smoother. Google has added a neat feature in Google Maps. Whenever you ask for directions from point A to point B, Maps will also provide a nifty little interactive map with an estimated elevation for each part of the route that shows elevation changes and the overall climb and descent of the route. Handy little tool for those with mobility issues who can now choose alternative routes to avoid steep climbs. Currently available on the desktop version of Google Maps, we’ll be checking our smartphones for updates, don’t worry.

We are fully committed to Fringe For All.
