FRINGE FESTIVAL APP

WHAT IS THE $2.50 CAPITAL REPLACEMENT FEE?
In order to help cover operations costs for the Festival, a $2.50 Capital Replacement Fee (CRF) is applied to each ticket purchased. The CRF is applied to support the infrastructure of the Fringe Festival and the ATB Financial Arts Barns, which is the Festival’s primary venue. In 2012, the CRF helped the Fringe offset 5% of Festival operating costs. All other ticket revenue goes directly to the artists.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER
EVERYONE NEEDS A TICKET. To enter both Fringe and BYOV venues, everyone needs a ticket – including infants and children. Children’s tickets can be purchased at the student/senior rate if available.
NO LATECOMERS, NO RE-ENTRY. All shows begin on time and once a performance has started, latecomers will not be admitted. During the performance, if you leave for any reason, you will not be readmitted. Sorry, no exceptions.
NO REFUNDS. All ticket sales are final and there are no refunds or exchanges except if the Festival cancels or changes the schedule of a performance.
If you have any questions about ticket use or purchase, please visit the Central Box Office and our Box Office staff will be happy to assist you.

HOW EARLY DO I NEED TO ARRIVE TO MY SCHEDULED PERFORMANCE?

- Maps are also available via the Festival App on your Android or iOS phone.
Please arrive 30 minutes early to your scheduled performance and make sure to take travel time into consideration. Remember: We will not admit latecomers to any Fringe performance, under any circumstances, and there are no refunds or exchanges if you are late.
BRING YOUR OWN VENUE (BYOV) PERFORMANCES
A BYOV is a Fringe Festival designation for a producer who has chosen to present their show in a self-directed venue. The BYOV is not subsidized or operated by Fringe Festival producers.
In addition to tickets sold through Box Office locations, BYOVs have the option to sell part of their ticket inventory at their Venue door starting one hour prior to show time. Please be aware that tickets may no longer be available through Box Office locations at this time.
Please Note: Tickets sold at BYOV doors can only be purchased with cash.
SOLD OUT PERFORMANCES
A show is considered “sold out” when 95% of available tickets have been sold. If there is a show you really want to see, check with Box Office one hour before show time for Fringe Venues or try at the door for BYOVs. [Venues map]
