Purchase your $7 Vancouver Fringe Theatre Society (VFTS) Membership to gain access to the Fringe Festival. You can purchase your Membership at the Box Office or at the door of the venue. You can also add a Membership to your online ticket order for pick-up at the event.  Your Membership helps ensure that there will be a Festival! You will be required to present your Membership Card at each performance you attend. If you are unable to present your Card, you will be required to purchase an additional non-refundable Card. To prevent the loss of your Membership, take a photo of it with your photo ID, like this. Please follow the instructions on your Membership Card.

In addition to accessing shows during the Festival, by joining the VFTS, you are entitled to participate in its direction by attending the VFTS Annual General Meeting in 2019. Completely filling in your Membership Card and dropping it off at the Box Office or any Fringe venue activates your Membership. All activated cards will be entered into a draw for a 2020 Festival Pass. All personal information provided will be kept private and confidential and will not be passed on to any individual or organization as per our Privacy Policy, which is available at vancouverfringe.com.

Membership is valid until September 9, 2020.
