Location: Granville Island, 1398 Cartwright Street, Vancouver, BC
The Vancouver Fringe is a celebration of all kinds of theatre. Over 11 days in September, nearly 100 different theatre artists and companies come together to share their creativity on stage. Audiences are as varied as the performances with theatrical offerings for all tastes and ages. The uniqueness of the Fringe comes from the “everyone is welcome” selection technique—Mainstage shows are literally drawn out of a hat, giving all artists a chance to participate. There is also a category for artists who find their own venue (BYOV)—with some shows in surprising locations like inside bathrooms or the back of a car. Kick off the fall cultural calendar the week after Labour Day with the Vancouver Fringe Festival.
The Fringe also presents select year round shows through Theatre Wire. Visit TheatreWire.com to see what’s up next!
