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 15th is also by cash donation to the Food Bank. Thanks to Fringe sponsor (and venue) Origins Organic Coffee for suggesting this great partnership.
The Frequent Fringer Card gets you 10 shows for only $90! It is valid for one or two seats per performance, which means that the card holder can use it just for themselves or he or she can bring a friend to a performance, however, it is non-transferable. Both the card holder and the guest need to have a membership. The card may be used for ½ price shows, but your card will be punched for both people attending (i.e. just because the show is half price does not mean that the passholder and their guest can get in using only one “punch out” on the card). You cannot book in advance with the card. It is only valid at the door, starting 45 minutes before show time. Admission is subject to availability. Check the fresh sheet (at the Fringe Box Office and at each venue starting September 5th) and come early to avoid disappointment. The card can be purchased online or at the Fringe Box Office. There are only 100 cards, so buy one early to take advantage of this great deal! To purchase online, click here and then click the “passes” button on the top of the page.
Day-of-show tickets for all shows may be purchased at the individual venues starting 45 minutes prior to and until show time, subject to availability. Please arrive early. Patrons arriving at show time will not be admitted. No refunds for latecomers.
Advance tickets will be available online and in person up to four hours prior to show time and will be held at the door.
Online ticket sales begin on August 1, 2013.
In person ticket sales begin at the Fringe Box Office on Granville Island on August 29th, 2013. You may purchase tickets in person at our Fringe Box Office daily from noon – 8:00pm. We accept cash, VISA, MasterCard, and American Express.

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 regular ticket price revenue goes right into performers’ pockets. By joining the First Vancouver Theatrespace Society, you are also entitled to participate in its direction by attending the society’s Annual General Meeting in July 2014. Membership is valid until August 31, 2014. Please carry your membership card with you at all times. 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 2014 Festival Pass.
