FringeArts, formerly known as the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe, now has a permanent home for the arts on the Delaware River Waterfront.

Housed within a historic 1903 former pumping station beneath the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, FringeArts offers a 232-seat theater (with retractable seating) for hosting concerts, theater performances and special events throughout the year.

Exposed brick walls, high ceilings and large windows preserve the original character of the building and provide the backdrop for a wide range of performances hosted by FringeArts

The building also features rehearsal space, an outdoor events plaza, administrative offices and a popular restaurant/bar, La Peg.

La Peg at FringeArts

Housed inside the home of FringeArts, La Peg is a dining destination on the waterfront.

Helmed by acclaimed Philadelphia chef and restauranteur Peter Woosley (Bistrot La Minette), La Peg brings a casual French dining experience to the FringeArts space.

Serving an informal brasserie-style menu, the restaurant offers seating for 100 with a full bar and indoor-outdoor seating.

In addition to delicious food and refreshing beverages, the space also serves as an alfresco performance site and community gathering place.
