Just in case anyone is confused.

Fringe 2009 has no affiliation or connection with the NEW YORK INTERNATIONAL FRINGE FESTIVALsm
which is a production of THE PRESENT THEATRE COMPANY, INC.

We want our own identity.

Fringe Festivals take place ALL over the world.

Please don't confuse us with the Manhattan NYC)Fringe.

We are Long Island. This will be the FIRST Fringe Festival ever held here.

There can only be ONE first.

I am wondering what you would be able to call a festival that was designed after the HISTORIC event in Edinbourough, if you can not call it FRINGE?

We are a fringe. We want to honor the tradition & I don't want to be bullied to have to change our intent.

We honor ALL those who embrace the arts & we would never want to cause distress.

Our goal is to participate NOT compete. So, the true spirit of creativity, we celebrate the arts with this festival, no matter what it is ALLOWED to be called.

I might ADD that NO ONE in the USA OWNS the word "fringe". The following is a quote from - http://fringefestivals.us/what.php

"In the United States, no one organization or individual owns or controls the name "Fringe." There are no rules or regulations for how the individual festivals operate. The festivals' content, finances and structure vary from city to city. Generally, however, all the festivals are committed to an open forum of expression that minimizes the financial risks for both artists and audiences. Fringes strive to keep application fees and ticket prices low so that more people can participate in our festivals."
