Charm City Fringe Festival Launch Party

Artists and those who would be applauding them gathered at MAP Underground for a festive get-together to kick-off this year’s Charm City Fringe Festival.

It was a chance for those who would be onstage (or behind it) to meet some of those who’d be in the audiences at performances happening in a number of venues around town.
Folks were also treated to some samples of what was to come in the 10-day fest.
