Give Thanks–and Win a Fringe Hoodie!

Support the Fringe during these uncertain times by donating today! Image credit: Kitty Cheung.

This Thanksgiving, we’re asking you to give back and help us spread the word about the joy of Fringe. In spite of arts funding cuts, a global pandemic, and a restriction on audience sizes, the Vancouver Fringe has found a way to bring a safe return to live theatre. We are so profoundly grateful to our community and to our artists for joining us on this journey. But there are still too many people who don’t know about the incredible work being done at the Fringe. So spread the word and help us Close the funding Gap!

This Thanksgiving, we’re asking you to tell a friend why you’re thankful for the Fringe. Use the hashtag #ThanksVanFringe and #donatetoday to spread the joy and share the love! We’ll be keeping an eye on the hashtags and the best story will win a Fringe hoodie!*
