Welcome to the Fringe Movement

The Toronto Fringe Festival is Ontario's largest theatre and performance festival.

Fringe Fact: Taking place every July at venues across Toronto, Fringe is the best 12 days of the summer.

Fringe Fact: The Fringe Festival features 150+ shows every year that we...literally...draw out of a box. We call it the Fringe Lottery. 

Fringe Fact: We do this because we strongly believe that every voice has the equal right to be heard. 

Fringe Fact: Anyone can apply and every year artists are catapulted from obscurity to fame - tours with Mirvish, hit shows on CBC and Netflix... could you be next? 

Fringe is a movement. Fringe is a community. Fringe launches careers. Fringe is FUN.

Select one of the following options to join the movement. (Or simply join us as an audience member this summer! Tickets go on sale June 4, 2020 and the program is released end of May.)


But wait! Toronto Fringe is more than just a theatre festival. 

We also run a pop-up patio called POSTSCRIPT


And our winter festival, Next Stage

The Next Stage Theatre Festival is the grown-up sister festival of Fringe, which runs every January at Factory Theatre.
