With over 700 performances, in over 20 different venues the volume of Box Office phone calls can be unimaginably large. We encourage our patrons to purchase tickets online or in person at the Fringe Box Office to avoid congestion or delay.



Our online ticketing system might seem a little confusing at first, so here are some simple step-by-step instructions to make the process easier!

1. Sign In: You can browse anonymously to select your tickets, but you cannot purchase tickets without being signed in.

  • Everyone must have an account, and must sign in by clicking “Sign In” on the top left.
  • If you have forgotten your password, click “Forgot Password” and one will be emailed to you.
  • If you’re new to the Fringe, click “New Patron” and set up an account.
  • If you try to set up an account and a message tells you that another user has your email address, this means that you probably have an account in the system (it could be from years ago!) Try getting a new password sent to you by clicking “Forgot Password.”
  • If you are a Google or Facebook user, you can sign in using your existing account! Please keep in mind that if your account does not contain your email address or billing address, you will be prompted to fill out the required fields.

2. Watch where you click: Once you’re in, DO NOT USE the back, forward or refresh buttons on your browser. Use the navigation tabs at the top of the page instead.

3. Select your performance: You can browse through the list of shows by hovering your mouse over the “Pick a Genre” tab at the top of the page to find a show that suits your mood, or use the search bar to find specific shows!

  • Once you have found the show you wish to see, click “Add to Basket” to select performance times.
  • Select the date and time of your chosen show, click “Add to Basket” to the right.
  • Now you can select the number of tickets you wish to purchase. REMEMBER, every ticket-holder must have a Membership! When you have selected the correct number of tickets/Memberships, click “Add to Basket”.

This year, we’ve added the option to PRINT YOUR TICKETS AT HOME! That’s right, the Vancouver Fringe Festival has taken the leap into the 21st century! You can also bring them in on your smart phone, or visit the Box Office if you’d like them to print them for you. Click here for Fringe Box Office hours and information.

4. Review: Review your Basket carefully. All purchases are FINAL. Ensure that you have selected the correct show, date, and time before you “Proceed to Checkout” . You can remove tickets by clicking the red “x” to the left of the ticket you wish to remove, or click “Cancel Order” at any time to release your selected tickets and start over.

5. Checkout: Click “Proceed to Checkout” and make a payment.

  • If you are not logged in yet, follow the prompts to sign into your account.
  • Verify that your personal information is correct, then click “Next”
  • Select “Email me my ticket”, then click “Next”
  • Fill out your credit card information. If you wish for us to store your credit card information on file, select “Save my credit card information for future use” (please note, this information is secure and confidential) then click “Submit”.

*No Membership required for Opening Night, Pick of the Fringe, or special fundraising performances.

MEMBERSHIP FEE (one time purchase per Festival year)

Purchase your $5 membership to gain access to the Festival. Without your membership fee there simply could not be a Festival as 100% of the base ticket price goes right into performers’ pockets. Your $5 Membership allows you to join the First Vancouver Theatrespace Society, and you are also entitled to participate in its direction by attending the society’s Annual General Meeting in 2016. Membership is valid until August 31, 2016. You will be required to present your card at each show you attend. If you are unable to present a card, you will be required to purchase another one at that time. All completed membership cards will be entered into a draw for a 2016 Festival Pass!

Please note that all personal information provided will be kept private and confidential, and will not be passed on to any individual or organization.



The Vancouver Fringe Vision is “Theatre for Everyone!” We hope to create opportunities for people of  all abilities and backgrounds to enjoy the Fringe. We’re continually working to improve our accessibility. This year we have increased our accessibility for those who are deaf and hard of hearing, blind and partially sighted and those with assisted mobility.

While not all venues and shows are accessible to everyone, visit our Accessibility Page to find information on what might be a good fit for any unique needs you may have!
