Fringe Cafe

Jimmy's Coffee Staff at the Fringe Cafe

The Fringe Cafe, located in the Scadding Court parking lot, was perfect for grabbing some shade, an iced coffee from our partner Jimmy's Coffee, relaxing in the Jon Kaplan tent (which is dedicated to conversations about theatre) and sampling our local food vendors. The main Fringe Box office was also located in the parking lot.

Jimmy's Coffee Pop-Up

Our favourite local coffee shop was on-site serving up delicious beverages including hot & cold brew as well as an exclusive Spicy Arnold Palmer - just for Fringe!! 30% of all their proceeds went to Fringe.

Local food vendors

Every day from 12pm-5pm you could sample our tasty local food vendors. See a full list here.

The Jon Kaplan Tent

In honour of Jon, the head theatre reviewer from NOW Magazine who passed away earlier this year, we named a tent in the Fringe Club the Jon Kaplan Tent. This was a relaxing space nestled within the hubbub of the festival where you could rejuvenate after a long day of Fringing, connect with friends (both old and new) and discuss theatre – in true Jon Kaplan fashion.
