About

Aloha, as an all volunteer organized Fringe, our mission is to promote the development of original work in the performing arts in theatre, music, dance and all performance related art by emerging and professional artists, and to present a provocative multicultural arts festival unique to Hawai’i. And we do this for the love of the arts and to contribute to the artistic landscape and to making Hawai’i a Fringe Festival destination. So go on, be original in Hawai’i.

Our very first O‘ahu Fringe Festival took OFF in November 2011, and was held in the arts district of Chinatown Honolulu. It was very exciting to see our first one take flight. This was a special occasion as we made history and became part of the world wide fringe festival family. Delighted with our first baby steps we jump started Fringe 2, Fringe 3, and continued on with Fringe 4. Fringe shows were held at: The Creative, Next Door, The ARTS at Marks Garage, Ong King Art Center, The Dragon Upstairs, Kakaʻako Agora, Aloha Dancesport Centre, and at the Loading Zone.
