Honolulu (August 2022) – The Call to Performers is now LIVE for Oʻahu Fringe Festival, happening November 10, 11, and 12, 2022 in Chinatown, Honolulu. In the past, the festival has highlighted theater, music, dance, puppetry, spoken word, variety shows, and visual arts performances; but anything goes at this eclectic event, which pushes the boundaries of performing arts and showcases performances that are a bit different than the norm.

Similar to other Fringe festivals around the world, Oʻahu Fringe, which began in 2011, features performances in a variety of genres. In 2021, because of the pandemic and global COVID-19 restrictions the event took the form of a scaled-down miniFRINGE, with fewer venues and all local Hawaiʻi performers. The 2022 Oʻahu Fringe Festival is anticipated to be a return to how the festival was pre-pandemic, with multiple venues and an increased lineup of performing artists.
The application period for this year's festival is open until September 16, 2022.
Fringe is also seeking volunteers for November's festival. To inquire about being a volunteer (stage manager, coordinator, ticket-taker, or just a jack/jill of all trades), email

About Oʻahu Fringe Festival:
As a 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. The festival showcases emerging and professional artists in theatre, music, dance and all performance-related art, 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, and to make Hawaiʻi a Fringe Festival destination where the community and performers can celebrate the arts together.
About Fringe Festivals:
The origin of the Fringe began in Edinburgh, Scotland, when a group of artists decided to create their own performing arts festival. From its humble beginnings in 1947, the original Edinburgh Festival Fringe has grown into a massive annual event attracting visitors and artists from all over the world; and from their original festival, an international alternative performance culture has grown.
Fringe shows are sometimes unpredictable, which makes Fringe unique; but you may also see traditional productions held in either traditional or non-traditional venues. In general, Fringe Festivals are focused on the performing arts: theater, dance, puppetry, spoken word, and the like. They are uncensored, easy to produce, and low-tech. Performers vary widely, from amateurs to professionals. Above all, Fringes feature a huge array of original material, because that’s what Fringes naturally do well.
