TICKETS ARE LIVE for Oʻahu miniFRINGE 2021! Join the new Oʻahu Fringe Festival organizing staff and a stellar lineup of live local performers this November 4, 5 and 6. Several shows will also be streaming for free online via Facebook Live, for a special segment called FRINGE@HOME.

Similar to other Fringe festivals around the world, O’ahu Fringe features performances in a variety of genres. This year includes music, dance, comedy, culture, storytelling, and even a cabaret-style variety show. Because of the pandemic and global COVID-19 restrictions, the 2021 event will be a miniFRINGE, a scaled-down version of Oʻahu Fringe Festival with fewer venues and all local Hawaiʻi performers.

This year’s shows will be staged at Downtown Art Center (1041 Nuʻuanu Ave., Second Floor), and NextDoor nightclub (43 N. Hotel St.)

Tickets for each show are set at $10. On Saturday and Sunday at NextDoor, an All-Night Pass is also available at a discounted price if attendees wish to stay and see all three shows each night. Tickets are available at or FRINGE@HOME shows will be free and available for public viewing on the Oʻahu Fringe Festival Facebookpage during and after the performances.

About Oʻahu Fringe Festival:

As an-all volunteer-organized Fringe Festival, our mission is to promote the development of original work in the performing arts, and to present a provocative multicultural arts festival unique to Hawai’i, showcasing emerging and professional artists in theatre, music, dance and all performance- related art. The O’ahu Fringe Festival, which premiered November 10-12, 2011, brings artists, audiences and the community together in Chinatown, Honolulu. We have welcomed artists from the Hawaiian Islands, New York, California, Chicago, Seattle, and beyond. We do this for the love of the arts and to contribute to the artistic landscape, to make Hawai’i a Fringe Festival destination, where the community and artists celebrate the arts together.

Oʻahu Fringe Festival is fiscally sponsored by
Downtown Art Center, at 1041 Nuʻuanu Ave, Second Floor, Honolulu, HI 96817.
