The San Francisco Fringe Festival, or SF Fringe, is a fringe theater festival produced by the EXIT Theatre in San Francisco. It is one of the oldest fringe festivals in the United States.[1] It takes place over the course of two weeks every September.[2]

The festival was founded in 1992 by several members of BAIT (Bay Area Independent Theatre), a consortium of small theatres in San Francisco and vicinity.

Performances featured at SF Fringe are chosen by lottery.[3] The 2017 festival featured about 150 performances by more than 35 theater companies, performing in three small theater venues.[4] Non Traditional Fringe Venues (NTFV) have included "bars and restaurants, on buses, park benches and trees".[5] Many of the shows feature mature themes or nudity.[6]

The conclusion of the festival features additional performances by shows chosen as the "Best of the Fringe".[7]
