Sure, art is subjective, but part of the fringing fun is finding the one show that tops them all. Did you see a show this Fringe that totally wowed you? One that made you laugh so hard you cried? Or, cry so hard you laughed?
Every year we host our very own awards – the Picks of the Fringe! These awards are a chance for you, the audience, to vote for the show you loved the most.
How to Vote for the Picks of the Fringe
- Save the ticket stub: Write your name and phone number on the back of the ticket stub from your favourite show
- Vote at the ballot box: Drop the ticket stub in the ballot box, located at the ATB Community Gazebo in McIntyre Park
There are multiple ways to show your fav Fringe show some love. Spread the word to your friends, see the show more than once, or vote! Make your top show a Picks of the Fringe award winner! These awards mean a lot to our artists, so give them a chance to win the Patrons’ Pick award.
