Fringe Festival

If you are unfamiliar with the concept of a fringe festival, it started life in 1947 when eight theatre companies turned up uninvited to the inaugural Edinburgh International Festival. These groups aimed to take advantage of the expected large theatre crowds to showcase their own, alternative, theatre. The Artists Group, a Hicksville, Long Island based association, with its own history of multi- artistic events has brought fringe to Long Island.

Sales from these spaces will remit 10% of the gross sales. Tables are FREE if you just want to distribute information about your group or organization. The public is invited to observe the art & sculpture up close & personal, along with the artists themselves.
