This is Fringe

 

The 35th Annual Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival: August 11-21, 2016.

Before the Fringe there was a void... Edmonton was in the grips of boredom. But, in 1982, artists and audiences collided and Fringe was born. Offering refuge from the dull, creativity to the weary, an energy took root – Edmonton was saved! With more than 1,500 live theatre performances across 44 venues, everyone is certain to find their Fringe. After a show, grab a beer from a festival patio, a snack from a vendor, and catch buskers and live shows at one of our three free outdoor stages.
