Exploring the benefits of your Fringe Button

By now you have probably seen the 2015 Scranton Fringe Buttons for sale at a Fringe event, one of our Button Partner’s places of business (see below for a complete listing), La Festa Italiana, NEPA Blog Con, or Fringe HQ. If you’ve heard someone talking about the Fringe Buttons but haven’t seen them, check out the photos below. They are a pretty awesome way to tell the world that you support the expansion of the performing arts scene in Scranton – take a photo of yourself with your button and post it online with our hashtag #ScrantonFringe!



Fringe Buttons squirreled away from our table at BlogCon at a record pace last Saturday!


Other than just being a cool piece of #ScrantonFringe swag, our buttons actually serve a few really cool purposes. First and most importantly, wearing yours gives you a great, reusable discount on tickets to the performances on Fringe Weekend (October 1-4, in case you forgot!). Once you pay $5 for your Fringe Button, you will get $3 off PER ticket purchase (excluding Late Night Music sessions).

Most shows are $10, and we wanted to implement a system that would help people be able to see more performances. If you think you’re going to attend even TWO shows over the course of the weekend, you should get your Fringe Button as soon as possible! They are available at Fringe HQ,  all Gerrity’s supermarkets in Lackawanna County, and all of our great button partners.

This brings us to the next great benefit of your Fringe Button – our Button partners! We have six awesome local small business that are all offering different discounts for showing your button until the end of 2015! Not only can you buy your button at these locations, you can show your button next time you’re there and score a discount simply for supporting Scranton Fringe! Here’s the full list for easy reference:

Please note: If you purchase your ticket in advance at the Button Holder Price, you MUST show your 2015 Button at the Box Office of each venue or you WILL be charged the $3 before being admitted to a show.
