It’s been a while since we’ve been able to all come together for a big old fashioned festival like this. Feels weird, right? But also kind of amazing? We’re very pleased to be presenting a festival full of exciting, innovative, shows. 

There have been many changes here at PuSh. Many new faces, new structures and new commitments, but one thing hasn’t changed: from staff to contractors to volunteers, every one of us is working to make the festival a success because we believe in PuSh. Each one of us has had a transformative experience at PuSh and each one of us is passionate about connecting audiences to remarkable artistic works. Every one of us believes that PuSh offers something vital to audiences and artists.

That is why we are so excited to share this programming with you! 

And there are more exciting changes. The PuSh Pass is back after a brief hiatus. This was a favorite way to see the festival, and we know many of you will be as happy as we are to see it return. We’ll also be hosting a fully in-person Industry Series curated by Talking Stick which you can access via the Industry Series Pass. And for the first time we are offering a Digital PuSh Pass for all of our online content. 

So whether you’re a longtime supporter or a new ticket buyer, 

We so hope you’ll join us!
