The Toronto Fringe Festival is Ontario’s largest theatre festival, with 160 shows at 38 venues in Toronto’s west end and (new this year!) Toronto’s east end. Running for twelve days every July, it is a place where everyone can access, discover and experiment with the arts. Who knows — you might be the first to see the next big thing!
Since 1989, the Toronto Fringe Festival has been a launchpad for the artists and actors that power Canada’s arts and media landscape. Some of Canada’s most successful theatre productions premiered at the Toronto Fringe, including Kim’s Convenience (now a hit CBC TV show), My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding (the first production from the creators of Come From Away), ‘Da Kink in My Hair, The Drowsy Chaperone and Life After.
