Are you a Fringe Artist looking for a BYoV? Here, let us help! 

Bring Your Own Venue (or a BYoV) is a venue or location not included in the list of Fringe Theatre managed venues. If you were not drawn in the Fringe Lottery, or if your performance is better suited for an unconventional space, a BYoV might be the right fit for you.

Below is a list of regularly used BYoVs. If you are an artist looking to find a home for your Fringe show, this is a great place to start. However, you’re not limited to the venues on this list! If you have an idea of a new venue, please reach out to both your venue contact and to Victoria, Fringe’s Programming Administrative Coordinator, at to start the venue approval process.

Please note:
  • Fringe Theatre does not represent or have an affiliation with the venues listed below. This list is simply meant as a resource for artists interested in producing in a BYoV;
  • The list below is by no means complete – we will update it as often as possible, but feel free to research potential locations on your own;
  • Venues vary in cost based on a variety of factors including but not limited to location, capacity, amenities, and support. Please contact the venue directly for more information, including accurate venue capacities, safety information etc.;
  • BYoVs come with financial risk, and additional work that is the responsibility of the producing company. Please consider your options carefully!; and
  • We’re here to help you! If you have any questions about the BYoV process, please reach out to!
