    FronteraFest allows artists, actors, singers, dancers and writers the freedom to perform in virtually any medium or manner, and has been delighting, challenging and engaging audiences for nearly 25 years. In what has been described as the premiere ‘performance event of the Southwest’, participants have traveled from around the world to participate, as well as attend. Actors from as far as Chang Ung University in Seoul, South Korea performed a fascinating adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, in both Korean and English. Other U.S. cities represented in recent years include New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Minneapolis and Los Angeles. Throughout the life of the Festival, there have been thousands of participants.

The highest ranked performancesget to return to the stage each Saturday of the Short Fringe for a ‘Best of the Week’ showcase. The final week of the Short Fringe is reserved for ‘Best of the Fest’ February 14th – 18th, which are pieces selected from ‘Best of the Week’, in addition to a special?‘Wild Card’ night, which are pieces selected by FronteraFest staff and crew.
