Current as of 7/11/2022
If you plan to attend the 2022 Fringe, here is the health and safety information you need.
The Rochester Fringe Festival and each venue in the Festival independently establishes its own masking and vaccine guidelines. For the Spiegeltent and outdoor venues, the Fringe does not currently require vaccination checks or masking at this time.
To confirm the rules in place at the time of a Festival performance, the Fringe has published the vaccine and masking requirements of each venue below. These rules will be continually updated so you should check them at the time of a performance you plan to attend. We at the Rochester Fringe Festival encourage mask wearing regardless of the rules set forth by each venue.

In consultation with event safety experts and the Monroe County Health Department, we will issue final guidance on indoor and outdoor events closer to the festival itself. Guidelines for both indoor and outdoor events may change.
The Fringe believes that during these challenging times, art is more important than ever to a civilized society. We look forward to enjoying the festival with you safely.
