Soon, all those weirdo shows you like will be seen here.
The Race Street Pier will soon have a neighbor that isn’t just a bridge or a river: The Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe, which will henceforth be known as FringeArts, has broken ground on their new HQ at Race Street and Columbus Boulevard in the former High Pressure Fire Service building.
FringeArts HQ will be a center for performance and visual arts, and will feature a 240-seat theater along with studios, a permanent festival hub, an outdoor plaza, bar/restaurant, and more. And since there’s going to be a full-time base of operations, FringeArts will be hosting all of those strange shows you like year-round, not just during the FringeArts Festival (Sept. 6th – 21st this year), which the building is scheduled to be open for. And hey, stuff on the waterfront! That’s always good.
