EDMONTON FRINGE FESTIVAL
Beware the stage that will transfix the world!
In the Edmonton neighbourhood of Old Strathcona, a multitude of bizarre and inexplicable events are afoot. One thing is certain: the Fringed possess powers far beyond those of ordinary mortals. For 31 years, they have come from around the city, the country and the globe, transfixing mild-mannered Edmontonians of all ages with more than 1,400 theatrical performances (of 180 different unjuried and uncensored plays), plus busking acts, children’s activities, vendors, artisans and visitors.
You shall not escape The Village of The Fringed!
The Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival is the largest and longest-running Festival of its kind in North America. The Edmonton Fringe doesn’t jury or censor artists’ work in any way and selects performances using an unbiased lottery system. Participating artists receive 100% of ticket revenue from their performances; the Fringe relies on donations from Festival patrons, public funders and business sponsors to operate.
The Fringe runs August 16– 26, 2012, in venues throughout Old Strathcona and beyond.
