Support Something Weird


Support underserved artists

Your support of the HFF will provide performance opportunities and exposure for traditionally underserved artistic communities right here in your city.

The HFF will give you and your business opportunities to engage with artists, organizers, other sponsors, and businesses with whom you might not otherwise connect.

Build relationships

Set the foundation

The HFF has a vision of becoming a long-term, annual arts event in the Midstate. Your support will help shape and grow the event for future years.

The HFF will be promoted across all areas of the Midstate in general and throughout Harrisburg in particular, raising your visibility to thousands of existing and potential customers.

Reach new customers

Strengthen the arts community

You will be a part of a unified group of individuals,
businesses, and organizations committed to showing
the significance, diversity, creativity, and value of
the arts community in Central PA.

They’re an international tradition in the arts community that can be found in thousands of locations around the world. To the best of their ability, all fringe festivals:

Present performance opportunities
for anyone willing to
produce a piece of art

Make space for all arts,
and strive to foster inclusivity and diversity

Offer an uncensored artistic experience
with clearly defined offerings for all

Give 100% of a production’s ticket revenues back

to the artists that created it


Pennsylvania’s Midstate plays home to a rich, active, and varied community of arts and artists. The Harrisburg Fringe Festival Committee sees an opportunity to elevate the arts in Harrisburg/Central PA by giving artists of all stripes the resources and venues they need to connect with audiences in a spirit of community celebration.


Imagine a 4-day event that takes place at locations all over the City of Harrisburg, featuring theater, dance, puppetry, music, visual arts, spoken word, and more. Attendees will be able to purchase
tickets for as many performance opportunities as time will allow across the span of the Festival, all while enjoying food and beverages from local businesses.
That’s our vision for the 2023 HFF.

In the spirit of all Fringe Festivals, the HFF will be:

INCLUSIVE All art and artists are welcome to submit their work: dance, spoken word, theatre, comedy, drag, music, painting, and more

UNJURIED Performers will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis, not by committee.

UNCENSORED It is not for the HFF to say what might or might not be suitable for audiences. There will be well-defined categories for kids and families, adults, etc., but the participants’ art
will only be determined as “good” by the audiences they attract.

What if the Harrisburg arts community collaborated in a spirit of creative celebration and invited everyone else to join in?
