Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival

mid July
Winnipeg, Manitoba (MB)

More than two decades old, the annual Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival showcases 12 days of original, live theatre productions attracting more than 85,000 visitors each year who come to enjoy over 150 indoor events along with all the ever popular acts on the outdoor stage.

The second-largest event of its kind in North America, the Winnipeg Fringe Festival welcomes local companies and performers from Canada, the USA and all over the world - some even from as far away as New Zealand and Australia - to present exciting, independent comedy, drama, improv and dance to enthusiastic audiences.

The festival takes place in various venues throughout Winnipeg's historic Exchange District, a National Historic Site of Canada. The majority of these venues are located within a five-minute walk of Old Market Square, home to the Fringe information and merchandise tent, MTS Outdoor Stage, Kids Fringe, Beverage Pavilions and Vendor’s Market.

Favourite productions include Canadian playwright TJ Dawe’s “The Slip-Knot”, One Man Star Wars Trilogy, the Off-Broadway play based on the original trilogy, written and performed by Canadian actor, Charles Ross and directed by TJ Dawe, and Ribbit Productions’ “BoyGroove’, as well as Monster Theatre’s “The Canada Show”.

Ticket information can be be accessed by phone at 204 942 6537 or toll-free at 1 877 446 4500.
