Vancouver Fringe Festivals

Vancouver Fringe Festivals
1398 Cartwright St
Vancouver BC V6H 3R8
Presenting live theatre in an informal, accessible and inexpensive environment, the Fringe strives to break down traditional boundaries between audiences and artists, encouraging open dialogue between theatre-goers and theatre-creators. Audiences are invited to experience the work of seasoned veterans and emerging artists. Local, national and international artists benefit from working together and learning from each other in a vibrant and exciting Festivals atmosphere. In order to stimulate artistic innovation, applications for participation in Fringe Festivals are accepted on a non-juried lottery. This process allows for a wide variety of performances to be presented to the public. We are a registered charitable society (#11 8919547 RR0001) that gives 100% of the regular box office revenue back to the artists. In keeping with the idea of "Fringe," there are two venue options for artists. They can apply for a Mainstage Venue, which is allocated by the Festivals, or they can bring their own venue! These are called BYOVs and have included unconvential places and locations, such as a car, a boat and a tree. Yipee!
