We are Tampa’s only open-access, uncensored, international fringe theatre festival. We adhere to the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals (CAFF) model in that we:
- Are primarily based around indoor performing arts productions.
- Are completely uncensored.
- Accept companies through a lottery.
- Return 100 percent of the money generated from ticket sales to the artists themselves.
