Wrapping up 2023 at Vancouver Fringe Festival

2023 has been an incredible year for Vancouver Fringe. As we head into our 40th anniversary year, we wanted to reflect on what made this past year such a success…

As the final applause echoed through the stages of Granville Island, we bid farewell to the 2023 Vancouver Fringe Festival, a year that brought together 214 artists, 89 shows, over 500 performances, and a whopping 10,000 enthusiastic attendees! The city buzzed with energy as we celebrated the incredible diversity of talent that graced our many venues. And hey, that’s just the festival – 2023 has been unforgettable.

Did you know our Festival is un-curated? Our lottery draw takes place at the beginning of the year, where we select the artists who make up the bulk of our performances! It’s a testament to our commitment to pushing boundaries and embracing the unexpected. Our 2024 lottery is currently open, if you’re keen to get on stage, or feel like entering on a whim like Katie Power, enter today!

A highlight of our year was presenting the marvellous Amica Hunter’s “Anatomica” at The Nest Theatre in December. This thought-provoking show that seamlessly blends art and the human experience was a joy to see and the perfect way to end a year of Fringing.

As we get ready for our 40th anniversary year, we invite you to be a part of the Fringe Family! Whether you’re looking to billet a performer, volunteer during the Festival, make a donation, or simply attend one of our shows, there’s a place for you in our community. Your involvement isn’t just welcomed; it’s essential in helping us produce our Festival.

So, here’s to the artists, the dreamers, the vollies, the donors, and the Fringe fans – thank you for making the Vancouver Fringe Festival 2023 an unforgettable experience. Wishing you all a fantastic holiday season and a Fringe-tastic New Year!
