How to Fringe

"Fringing" is for everyone who comes out to the festival. It's about discovering and experiencing something new. 

Since 1989, “Fringers” 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 wait all year 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 Fringers
