what is a fringe?

Toronto’s largest theatre festival, featuring 150+ artistic creations that welcome 90,000+ patrons every year.

  • 12 days of fun, with a Fringe Club at Honest Ed’s – Toronto’s hottest pop-up patio, where you can enjoy a cold drink at our licensed bar and out the artist alley.
  • For everyone, with shows in every genre from toe-tapping musicals to gut busting sketch comedy.
  • Where you catch the next big thing, like notable past Fringe shows The Drowsy Chaperone, Kim’s Convenience and ‘da Kink in My Hair.
  • For the adventurous, with 14 plays in unexpected locations like parking lots, school buses and a bra shop.
  • A welcoming community event – all art at teh festival is chosen at random, our tickets are a maximum of $11, and we never censor anything.
  • For kids and families, with FringeKids! plays at the Palmerston library and kids’ tickets for only $6.
  • Guided by the key principles of the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals (CAFF), the Toronto Fringe has been presenting the most fun, most accessible and most cutting edge theatre for the past 24 years.

like all caff festivals, we follow three golden rules:

  1. All shows at the Fringe must be chosen at random by lottery or first come/first served.  The Toronto Fringe received almost 700 applications last year.
  2. 100% of the ticket price is returned to artists – last year, CAFF festivals returned $5,424,587 to 1200 companies.
  3. We will never intervene in the artistic content of participating productions. These are your stories, this is your art.

daily activities july 4th – 15th

The Fringe Club at Honest Ed’s
 581 Bloor St W

Part speak-easy, part soap-box, part art-experiment, the Fringe Club is the beating heart of the Fringe Festival. Located behind Honest Ed’s, the Fringe Club is abuzz with excitement from early afternoon until the wee hours of the morning. Visual artists hock their wares at the Fringe Artist Alley, local musicians showcase their talents on the Artist Alley Outdoor Stage (from 6pm to 7pm nightly),  micro-plays bring tents and sheds to life as part of the AlleyPlays series, industry types argue “Theatre is dead…Long Live Theatre!” at the Tent Talks Series, drinks are on ice and you are in the middle of it all.  ALL EVENTS ARE FREE.  Food service and bar service will be available every evening.

To see the Visual Fringe exhibit listings and AlleyPlay performance listings, please go to Show Listing and search for Artist Alley. (Identified by the AA icon.)
