Phindie's Official Fringe Bike Tour led by Julius Ferraro

Your guide

Take a day to bike across Philadelphia and see a handful of Fringe’s best offerings. Julius loves talking about performance, beer, cats, the state of Philly arts, freelancing, and anything else you like talking about.

Each bike tour, which will take place on Sunday the 14th and Saturday the 20th) includes four shows, but you only need to sign up for two to take advantage of some excellent offers. All tickets are 30% off, and the package comes with a FREE FRINGEARTS MEMBERSHIP, a $65 value courtesy of our pals at FringeArts.

Best of all, THIS HAS NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE.

So doing it now makes you super cool.

This tour includes a wide range of work from the fringiest of the fringy to the world-class; from dance to theater to interdisciplinary mish-mash; from classy joints to basement black-boxes. Between shows we’ll chat about theater stuff and loiter the Festival Bar with like-minded theatergoers. At the end of each tour we land at La Peg, the Festival Bar, to brag about our cultural voyage.
