THE FESTIVAL

The Vancouver Fringe Festival is an annual celebration of Theatre for Everyone! In 2017 we’ll feature more than 700 performances by over 90 artists over 11 days from September 7 – 17. The Festival employs an “everyone welcome” selection technique—the Mainstage shows are literally drawn out of a hat, giving all artists a chance to participate. The Vancouver Fringe Festival also features unique site-specific theatre where artists stage their work in the nooks and crannies of Granville Island, as part of the Fringe Onsite Program. A lot happens during the Festival – so let us break it down for you.

The Festival

In 2017, the Festival runs from September 7-17. Tickets will be on sale in August! A full of list of shows will be available on our website, and in our Program Guide.
