Venue sponsorship includes exclusive presence at one of our venues including lobby signage.

Visual artists have one hour to create an art piece with a secret ingredient. The winner is decided by the voting public.

Over 1000 people attend opening and closure parties each year.

Underwrite a scholarship for a single artist or a performing group for the festival. KC Fringe offers the opportunity to scholarship new talent that may not have enough funds for entry fees and other related expenses.
