Ignatius Donnelly was the 2nd Lt. Governor of Minnesota and a staple in late 19th Century American politics. This show is a tale of how Donnelly's penchant for conspiracy theories and pseudoscience has maligned him from the history books while his influence still remains in the fringes of society. Tales of political fights, the Lost City of Atlantis, and Sir Francis Bacon await, as historian and storyteller Kyle B. Dekker gives you a personal tour.

Political content discussing 19th political events.

Tucson Fringe Festival

The Tucson Fringe Festival is an unjuried, uncensored performing arts festival. Since 2011, following international fringe tenets, the festival provides artists with low-risk, low-cost opportunities to perform by using economies of scale to reduce venue rental costs and by taking only 20%, and sometimes 0%, of the artist’s earnings. Tucson Fringe also provides the Tucson arts community with avant-garde, non-traditional performing arts at low-cost ticket prices.

The festival does not curate or select the performances, maintaining an environment in which everyone and anyone can perform. This ensures that underrepresented artistic voices, such as people of color, the LGBT+ community, women, and other marginalized genders, are championed in our community.

The festival takes place in January every year across multiple venues in downtown Tucson. On average, every year the festival has 20+ shows with between 50-60 performances during the festival weekend.
