The KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival recently distributed more than 160,000 free copies of its 2017 Fringe Guide to all festival venues, KeyBank locations, area universities, hotels, coffeehouses and other establishments.
The 120-page guides will be inserted into several area newspapers in September. Guides will be available during the festival Sept. 14-23.
“We work very hard to publish our ever-expanding Fringe ‘bible,’” said Erica Fee, Fringe producer. “Even though we are also launching our first-ever Fringe app, many people still prefer to have that printed version to flip through and mark up.”
The Fringe app is available for free download at the Google Play and Apple App stores. It includes show information and schedules, and can be used to purchase tickets directly.
Fringe will continue to offer smartphone ticketing as it has for several years.
