CAFF & World Fringe


CAFF logo

The Toronto Fringe is proud to be a member of the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals (CAFF). Like all CAFF festivals we follow three golden rules:

  1. All shows at the Fringe must be chosen at random by lottery, or on a first come/first served basis. Last year the Toronto Fringe received over 700 applications to our lottery.
  2. 100% of the net ticket price is returned to artists. Last year, CAFF festivals returned more than five million dollars to performing arts companies.
  3. We will never intervene in the artistic content of participating productions. These are your stories, this is your art.

In addition to being part of the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals, Toronto Fringe is also part of a worldwide network of Fringe Festivals, called World Fringe. World Fringe is a movement, a network, and an international community of theatre-makers and lovers.
