The Vancouver Fringe is a celebration of all kinds of theatre. Over 11 days in September, more than 90 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.

Festival Dates: Sept. 10-20, 2020

The Fringe also presents shows year round through Theatre Wire. Visit to see what's up next!
