Apply For Fringe

Applications are now open closed. Thanks to all who applied!

Join us at the Lottery Party to celebrate the winners in real time.

This is going to be a ground-breaking year for Fringe as we move into our new Fringe Club at Scadding Court Community Centre. This urban playground will become the hub for all Fringe artists, vendors, volunteers, donors and patrons. We can’t wait to share more details about our re-visioning of this site in the months to come. But for now, we can promise you that our goal this year is to make the city stop and take notice of your work. We have the numbers to make it happen!

Your first step is to apply to the Fringe Lottery. It only costs $28.50 and takes about 5 minutes to do. You don’t even need to know anything about your show yet! And if you get in, our staff will guide you through the producing process step-by-step, offering free seminars, handbooks, and best practices. You will be connected with members of the media, your venue will be booked for you, and we will even run your box office

Other perks that come with Fringe producing:

  • (NEW!) Access to a brand new Artist Hub where you can congregate and get work done
  • (NEW!) A relationship with an Artist Liaison who will help answer your questions
  • Access to the Fringe Performer Pass, where you get tickets at a discounted price
  • Access to new audiences, through our various outreach programs
  • A presence on our website, social media and printed materials
  • Support from our front of house managers, volunteers and box office staff
  • Being welcomed into the “Fringe Family!” Once you’re in, you’re a lifer.

Why do we do this by lottery? Why do we leave it all to chance?

Because we believe that every story has a right to be told. Because we believe that everyone should be offered access to the creative opportunities at Fringe. No matter who you are.
