FronteraFest is a unique collaboration between two of Austin’s most well-known and respected arts organizations: Hyde Park Theatre, an award-winning professional theatre in Central Austin, and ScriptWorks, a playwright development and service organization with members in Texas and throughout the country.

A legendary vehicle for artists, actors, musicians, poets, and performers of all types, FronteraFest has grown from a fledgling project into one of the largest and most popular fringe performance festivals in the Southwest.

FronteraFest is composed of three separate performance events:

  • The Short Fringe showcases pieces 25 minutes or less, and runs the entirety of the festival (January 15 – February 16) at Hyde Park Theatre.
  • The Long Fringe features pieces up to 90 minutes, and runs January 21 – February 2 at Ground Floor Theatre.
  • Mi Casa es Su Teatro takes place one day only on Saturday, February 9, primarily in private Austin homes and other locations throughout the city.
