Edinburgh-Style Festivities Make Their Way To San Diego

Posted: Jul. 3rd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

The first week of July is going to see an impressive array of performances ranging from music to magic and beyond in the beautiful La Jolla area of San Diego. Dubbed the San Diego Fringe, a carry-over title dating all the way back to 1947, the festival promises to be an exciting event perfectly timed with the closing of this year's Del Mar Fair.

In the summer of 1947, when the first Edinburgh International Festival took place in Scotland’s capital to showcase performing arts, eight theater companies not included in the festivities presented performances on the side. Over the years, this Fringe Festival has grown to huge proportions as an open-access arts event that features thousands of performers from around the world and sells more than a million tickets every year.

The Edinburgh Fringe has inspired dozens of similar festivals. Now San Diego is jumping aboard the Fringe- wagon with a week long event and more than 50 performers bringing a new wave of theater, dance, puppetry, music, magic, comedy and circus to town July 1-7.
