Rogue Festival champions the gritty, got-something-to-say outlook of the independent performer and Fresno’s Tower District. By connecting art, artist, and audience in a non-curated, non-adjudicated First Amendment Zone every year, Rogue Festival honors those who speak their truth, challenge the status quo, and perform audaciously – creating a distinctly forward-thinking culture as it goes along. Presented in a fringe festival-style format, the Festival includes theatre, dance, spoken word, music, performance art, puppetry, and more for fearless Central Valley audiences over 10 days.
