Fresno's Rogue Performance Festival is a non-juried arts festival that celebrates the independent performer and artist. This annual celebration is made up of theatre, music, dance, film, performance art, puppetry, spoken word, storytelling, visual arts and more.
In 2002 the Festival showcased 16 performing companies and attracted over 1200 audience members to two venues… the Rogue Mainstage and the Rogue Cafe. Since then the Rogue has grown dramatically. The festival sold over 10,000 tickets in 2008. The Festival was also bestowed with a Proclamation by the City of Fresno and was chosen as The Greatest Event On Earth by Festivals.com. In 2006, a whole week was proclaimed for us by the city. In 2007, the Rogue and it’s founders received the Horizon Award by the Fresno Arts Council for it’s contribution to the cultural landscape. 2007 also saw the Rogue grow into the largest festival of it’s kind on the US West Coast. You can be a part of it!
