Celebrating 11 years of the solo artist!

Submissions for Solofest are now Closed!
Please contact victoria@whitefiretheatre.com with any questions!

The last couple of years have been a rolelrcoaster! The need for storytelling to continue is proven year after year by the response of those that share their story and those that hear their story with nearly all the artists having sold-out performances in Solofest 2020. Eighty performances were scheduled making the Whitefire Theatre the second largest solo festival in the U.S., and the only one consistently streaming artist content!

Never was there more a need for the arts to continue than 2021. Whitefire went on to live stream "The Best of the Fest" (the top ten performances fromSolofest2021),and now, beginning September 10th, Black Voices will have live and streaming performances.

Because of the vision of Artistic Director, Bryan Rasmussen and his commitment to expanding the capability of bringing the solo shows to a wider audience, Solofest 2021 was able to continue because of live-streaming, and we will continue that work in 2022!
