The Asheville Fringe Arts Festival has been bringing the wonderfully weird, cutting edge, and avant garde to Asheville for 15 years, and they're kicking off the next season of Fringe with a party at downtown's Crow and Quill on Wednesday, June 28th that will celebrate friends of the Fringe. The Crow and Quill event opens the 2018 Fringe Fest submission period and will also mark the beginning of the Summer Fringe series.
The event begins at 7 p.m. with a mix and mingle, and Fringe directors Jim Julien and Jocelyn Reese will be on hand answering questions from prospective Fringe artists. At 8 p.m., Fringe supporters in the community will be recognized in an awards ceremony. At 9 p.m., the experimental dance troupe The Accidentals, who are also long-time Fringe artists, will perform.
Whether you're curious about the Fringe or you're a longtime fan, Wednesday's event will add a welcome whiff of weird to your summer. Stop by the Crow and Quill and embrace the fringey side of life.
