Any way you fringe, one thing’s for certain: it’s always an adventure to new frontiers and destinations unknown. Experienced Fringe-stro-nauts and first-time spacewalkers are invited to journey with us to infinity as the 42nd Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival returns to the heart of Old Strathcona from August 17 to 27. Grab your zero-grav boots, tickets, best fringing pals and your handy guide to the galaxy. The Answer is…FRINGE!  

As North America’s largest, longest-running Fringe Theatre Festival, we invite you to enjoy live theatre featuring Artists from around the world, outdoor performances, ice-cold beer, green onion cakes, our ATB Golden Ticket contest, unpredictable Albertan summer weather, and so much more! 

Edmonton Fringe is possible thanks to the generous support of our Funders, Donors, Sponsors, and Volunteers. Our thanks to Lead Festival Partner ATB Financial for supporting the Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival.
