It’s been a great year so far and now we’re gearing up for PortFringe 2019 (June 13-22, 2019). Help us keep the momentum going by making a gift to support PortFringe today! When you give to Fringe, you support a community that takes big bucks and beer tents out of the Fringe equation – and focuses instead on building relationships and community that MATTERS.

Every gift matters!

$50 pays for us to continue to provide FREE festival buttons to everyone;
$100 allows for a day of FREE and open to the public workshops!


Happy 8th birthday to PortFringe!!  …. And like any 8-year old, we’re ridiculous, super fun, exhausting, and need adults to help us out sometimes. But we throw some pretty sweet birthday parties.

PortFringe is Maine’s Fringe Festival, bringing 9 days of local, regional, national and international Artists of all styles and genres to Portland.  This year will be our biggest yet – with over 150 performances taking place June 13-22. No joke. As an All-Volunteer festival with a 100% Artist payout (every dollar you spend on tickets goes directly to the Artist), we depend on your donations to help make this crazy event go down.

From supporting our educational workshop series, to outreach programming to ensure equity and access to all of our community, your donations get this thing done. From all of us at PortFringe, thank you for donating. And go easy on the piñata.
