Festival City: Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival


FRINGE: not part of the mainstream; unconventional, peripheral, or extreme (aka something you want to check out!!!)

 

This year marks the 33rd Edmonton International Fringe Festival, an 11-day event anchored in Edmonton’s Old Strathcona district.  The Fringe showcases a variety of independent theatre performances from more than 1,200 local, national and international artists.  Purchase a program guide from these retailers to plan out your Fringe experience.  Many shows sell out, so buy your tickets in advance!

 

Along with the Festival’s diverse theatre offerings, the festival features an abundance of outdoor fun.  The offerings are comprised of theatre performances, indoor and outdoor shows, street performers and buskers, vendors and beer gardens.  Check out the full line-up of festival events here!
