August 6-12, 2018

Mostly Mozart Festival, New York City

The Mostly Mozart Festival is an American classical music festival based in New York City. The Festival presents concerts with its resident ensemble, the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, principally at David Geffen Hall of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

Vail Dance Festival, Vail, Colorado

For two weeks straight in Vail, Colorado, an assortment of acts will grace the stage to tell a story through dance. From various dance companies to single ballet all-stars, each body movement adds the next piece to the story until it achieves the ultimate climax, followed by a stunning resolution.

Minnesota Fringe Festival, Minneapolis, Minnesota 

The Fringe Festival is an exercise of not knowing what to expect. Since nothing is more fun than the unknown, the Minnesota Fringe Festival keeps the fun going for 10 crazy days. Theater is too vague of a term to describe what you’ll see; it’s more like bat-shit insanity of the highest order featuring some of the most creative theater performers in Minnesota. Come with an open mind and accept the fact that you have no idea what is going to happen next.
