Second Annual Fringe Festival Comes To Missoula

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

A smorgasbord of live works and performances comes to Missoula to promote the performing arts. The Second Annual Zootown Fringe Festival is underway.

Performers gathered Wednesday in Brink Gallery to prepare for their shows. The event features more than 50 performances throughout downtown Missoula, including live painting tonight and a fire display on Friday.

Fringe Fest has been held in cities across the nation since 1947. The founders said it only made sense to bring the fun to Missoula.

“What's interesting for the community is it gives them a chance to see things they might not get to see anywhere else, because it's not traditional performing arts. Not the types of things you'd regularly go down to theater to check out on Saturday night,” said Zootown Fringe Festival Executive Director Bob Leggett.

The event runs through Sunday. For ticket prices and a full schedule of performances head to Zootown Fringe.
