New Orleans Fringe


This year the Free-For-All is bigger than ever with free activities all over the neighborhood. The Free-For-All now has sites and activities at the Marigny Opera House for Family Fringe and all along St. Claude Avenue as a part of the Goodchildren Fringe Parade!

The heart of the Free-For-All is still our Free-For-All Tent, in its new location in Architect's Alley (behind Mardi Gras Zone) in the Marigny. Buy tickets, relax on our sofas, rest your feet, grab a beer and a bite to eat, watch Peep Shows, learn more about the shows and activities happening throughout the Fringe.

New Location! Free-For-All Lounge & Central Box Office

Architect's Alley behind Mardi Gras Zone

The heart of the festival! Sip a beer, nibble on great eats, see Peep Show Previews, check in for your volunteer shift, or chat with folks between shows.

Buy tickets here too! If you purchased tickets online, this is where you pick them up!
