Each year, Curious Theatre Branch curates and produces the Rhinoceros Theater Festival, which provides production and exhibition opportunities to hundreds of artists, drawing thousands in attendance each year. The longest-running fringe festival in Chicago, the Rhino features works in theater and performance from Chicago companies and national artists alike.

First organized in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago, the Rhinofest is unique among national fringe festivals in that artists are never charged a fee to participate, and each year our programs are individually curated rather than selected on a lottery basis.

The 2024 Rhinoceros Theatre Festival will happen from May 31st- June 30th at Facility Theatre, Chicago Dramatists, Labyrinth Arts, 79th St Theatre, Experimental Sound Studio and Women and Children First Bookstore.
