How to Fringe
Since 1989, “Fringers” (a proud tribe of arts lovers) have been inventing new and creative ways to Fringe in Toronto. Some take a week off work and see 5 shows a day. Some devote a weekend to KidsFest with their families. Others lie in wait to see what the hidden gems will be. Regardless of your Fringe style, welcome to the festival!
My advice? Talk to people – you’ll get great advice by just striking up a conversation with your fellow FringersFringe veteran, Derrick Chua
How to Fringe Like a Pro
Come to the BRAND NEW Fringe Club at Scadding Court Community Centre. The Fringe Club is where artists, audience members, staff and volunteers come to meet, share information and have fun.

TAKE A CHANCE
All shows in the Fringe are chosen by lottery, so part of the fun is taking a chance and being adventurous. Some veteran Fringers see up to 50 shows each year!
BE A CHAMPION
Support the over 1,200 artists in this festival by purchasing a ticket and then telling everyone you know. Support the community partners that make this grassroots festival possible by frequenting their business.
