INDOOR ARTISTS

You, the artist, are why we produce the Fringe Festival. Your inspiration and creativity astound us – and we are proud to support you. As a founding member of the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals (CAFF), we adhere to the CAFF guidelines – producing a non-juried, uncensored Festival.

Our Festival hosts approximately 1,500 artists each year. 100% of the ticket price goes directly to artists, allowing you to collectively earn more than $1.2M through the box office each year.

We operate 10 venues that can support an average of 110 shows each year. Shows are selected by lottery and scheduled by Festival staff. Each show selected receives approximately $8,000 in support, such as staging, lighting, technicians, and venue.

Below are the artists from around the world, across the country, and right here at home in Edmonton who have been selected in this year’s lottery. Please note: list is subject to change.
