These performances are Food Bank Shows! Not everyone has all they can eat, so the Fringe is partnering with the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. We asked Fringe artists, who keep 100% of regular box office revenues, if they wanted to donate 3% each show’s ticket sales to the Food Bank, and the response has been overwhelming! Many performers have chosen to donate to the food bank. Admission to our Awards Night on September 14th is also by cash donation to the Food Bank.
$40 Frequent Fringer 4: Good for 4 performances
$90 Frequent Fringer 10: Good for 10 performances
$270 Frequent Fringer 30: To celebrate the Fringe’s 30th anniversary only 30 of these exclusive cards will be sold! It’s good for 30 performances, plus you get a 30th Anniversary Fringe t-shirt!

Membership is valid until August 31, 2015. Please carry your membership card with you at all times. You will be required to present your card at each show you attend.
