Charm City Fringe Festival 2017

DC Metro Theater Arts presents coverage of the Charm City Fringe Festival 2017. Charm City Fringe is Baltimore’s largest independent theatre and performing arts festival. A hub for Fringe arts. Our coverage of Charm City Fringe is sponsored by Lexington Market.

This year Charm City Fringe announces the largest number of performances since the annual festival’s inception six years ago. Charm City Fringe will present 25 shows and more than 90 performances during the 11-day festival, which this year moves to a centralized two-block campus in the Bromo Arts District and stretches over two full weekends from November 2 to 12.

Charm City Fringe features performers from all over the North America, who will come to Baltimore to present new and experimental work. This year’s shows include a thriller on roller skates, a rock opera, and a one-person show starring “All Things Considered” host Emil Guillermo. Check out Charm City Fringe’s full artist line-up here.
