So much strange in Eureka

Eureka’s packed events calendar continues to grow. In the past couple years, to the delight of the most, Humboldt’s county seat has added the Friday Night Market, the Street Art Festival and Salt and Fog Fish Fest to its list of annual human draws. This week, another local cultural experiment launches — the inaugural Eureka Fringe Festival. It’s gonna get abstract! 

“Humboldt County is home to more performing artists per capita than just about anywhere in the United States,” festival organizers boast on the event’s website. “The Eureka Fringe will be an homage to the this heritage.” 

Through the weekend numerous Eureka venues will host a slew of experimental theatre performances featuring performers both local and from places less great. Be warned: Fringe Fest offers more shows than you’re physically capable of seeing. To better wrap your brain around all the oddness we suggest heading over to the event’s website where you’ll find full show descriptions, schedules and ticket information. Good luck.
