At Fringe Theatre, we believe storytelling connects us all. Storytelling inspires curiosity and fosters togetherness. Storytelling builds and celebrates community.

We give Artists the essential tools and space they need to share their stories with audiences and earn 100% of their ticket sales. Over the past 43 years, we’ve supported more than 43,000 Artists.

What happens here in Edmonton every August doesn’t happen anywhere else in the world. If you are a creative thinker, doer, appreciator, or anything in between, you belong at Fringe. And, if you love theatre and want to support Artists, we want to help you do that.

Your gift ensures we continue to connect Artists and audiences now and cultivate community for years to come. Together, we will continue welcoming diverse and unjuried stories to our stages.

Give Now, Fringe Forever
