Advertise in the Official Cincinnati Fringe Festival Guide

Cincinnati’s own Fringe Festival is Ohio’s largest performing arts festival featuring twelve days of explosive and experimental art showcasing theatre, visual, and film artists from across the globe. The 11th annual Festival will occur May 27 – June 7, 2014 in a dozen venues in Downtown/Over-the-Rhine where festival attendees can experience the arts in a walkable and happening Downtown atmosphere. Last year, the festival saw 8,000 people convene in Downtown Cincinnati and as the festival grows each year, that number is expected to increase.

Drawing audiences from as far as Columbus, Indianapolis, Chicago, Louisville, and Lexington, these patrons will visit and spend money in businesses downtown and across Cincinnati. They are constantly looking for places to eat, sleep, shop, and enjoy before, between, and after Fringe performances. The Fringe is a cultural experience that people look forward to all year long, some even using the two weeks as their vacations from work.

The Official Fringe Guide is a 24 page program, published by CityBeat, that lists shows, artists, venues, schedules, maps, local businesses and more for the duration of the festival. In other words, it is the go-to publication for any Fringe patron. 50,000 copies of the guide will be distributed across Cincinnati through CityBeat on May 14, 2014 with an extra 10,000 delivered directly to patrons of the festival. Your advertisment will be active in the publication from May 14, 2014 through June 7, 2014.

The festival patrons use this guide for show information, venue information, shopping information, and after hours activities. Patrons reference the guide multiple times over the course of the festival, giving your ad incredible staying power.

The guide is available not only in print, but also as a pdf online, in digital reader form, e-book formats, and also formatted for smart phones. Your advertisements will be included in all of these formats.
