The 38th Annual Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival
August 15 – 25
in the heart of Old Strathcona
brush up on How to Fringe & get ready to go wild with us 

We exist because theatre exists, and what exists here during the 11 days of the Festival doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world. We are Edmonton-grown and Edmonton-owned, and the vibrant success of Fringe is thanks to the more than 38,000 artists who have bravely taken an artistic risk with us since the Festival exploded onto the scene in 1982.
