The 2017 Hudson Valley Fringe Festival is a three day jubilee of art and comedy that will take place in historic and scenic Rhinebeck NY just 2 hours north of NYC and 40 minutes south of Albany. Taking place this year in November.
Founded in 2015 the festival will give upstate New York audiences a chance to see a mix of local and national stand-up comics, live podcast tapings, panels, workshops, improv, theater, live music, art exhibits, and feature length and short films.
Film screenings will take place along with panels, stand-up comedy shows, workshops and live podcast tapings.
Enjoy the art of today, tomorrow and beyond from the comfort of the Hudson Valley, one of the most picturesque parts of upstate NY. Close enough for a weekend getaway from NYC and perfect for a cross country vacation destination, you’ll want to save the date for the Hudson Valley Fringe Festival.

Response from festival:
We truly are sorry. Lack of communication was an oversight only because we were so short staffed this year. We were more popular than we had anticipated and so, having such a small staff, some communications got lost in the shuffle. We apologize from the bottom of our hearts. If we can figure out how to refund your fee, we will gladly do so. If you would like, we can also send you a code for a free submission this year. We have a larger staff this year PLUS someone dedicated to all communications! :)
