TaDa! Performing Arts Festival

The TaDa! Performing Arts Festival happens annually in September, with exceptions in 2020, 2021 and 2022 due to COVID.  It features regional and national professional artists from theatre, dance, music, multidisciplinary, multimedia and drag. Born from the ashes of the Piggyback Fringe (2008-2013), TaDa! was led by Kerstin Petersson from 2013-2017. Its performing arts mandate shifted to “bringing more diverse artists from the margins to the center” under artistic director Andrea Rowe in 2018, 2019, 2021 and 2023.
