Following The Blank Canvas Project, The Present Theatre Company announced our exciting three year strategic plan – FringeNYC 20/20. Henceforward, the New York International Fringe Festival will present approximately 200 national and international theater and performance companies in venues located across New York City each October.

There are two different segments of The New York International Fringe Festival – FringeNYC and FringeBYOV.

FringeBYOV (Bring Your Own Venue) will take place in each of the outer boroughs from October 1st – 31st.

There are three ways to BYOV: One Cultural Institution Group / larger institution will be selected as our Borough Hub Partner in each borough; Indie venues in the outer boroughs may apply to bring their own artists (VBYOA); and FringeNYC Alumni may rent their own venue in an outer borough (ABYOV).
