What Makes Vintage Improv Festival So Special

This is the only festival in the world that highlights the gifts of life experience in the performance of intergeneration improvisation.

What does that mean?

We have lots of participants who are in their 40's, 50's, 60's and beyond. Our youngest participant was 17 and out oldest just turned 90.

We welcome improvisers of any age who are allies in creating improv spaces where improv can be enjoyed, preformed and created regardless of chronologic age.

We are produced by  Vintage Improv Festival Inc, a 501(c)(3) non-profit with a mission to create festivals and foster the Vintage Improv community. 

Sponsoring a festival is a pretty expensive proposition and VIF has no deep pockets. So we work with our participants to pay as we go. Our signature offering is the curated team. What makes it so special and different is that ensember members are assigned by the festival to an ensemble that works together with on of our world class instructors leading to a performance.

  • Faculty is diverse, world class and international
  • We use a retreat model for community building
  • Performances are on a real stage with lights and audio
