I would like to personally thank every artist, patron and volunteer for a truly fabulous freshman Fringe! Some quick stats for you:
Over $28,000 in artist payments
Over 4,000 seats filled
Around 2,500 Unique Patrons
By and large, we exceeded our expectations! We just completed our organizational post-mortem - we have our sights set on how we can grow and improve in 2011.

After closing of the Festival, we donated our cinder blocks to the wonderful people of Roots and Rays, a Pilsen community garden! Check them out here: http://www.raizesyrayos.wordpress.com/.
Though live performance is temporal, the Fringe has left an impression, like an artifact from a bygone age. Bittersweet!
Cheers to all of the new friends we've made! Stay tuned for 2011, the plans for which are well underway.
