A Vancouver Island festival tradition for thirty years, Victoria Fringe Theatre Festival takes over downtown Victoria BC each summer for a 12-day celebration of live performance from around the world, featuring an eclectic mixture of spoken word, drama, musicals, dance, comedy, magic, theatre for young audiences and more.
Victoria’s Fringe is one of the oldest on the Canadian Fringe Festival circuit, and is a founding member of the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals (CAFF) ®. There are Fringe Festivals happening all around the globe – for more info see the World Fringe Network.
In keeping with CAFF’s guiding principles, shows in the Fringe are selected at random (by lottery), are uncensored, accessible to all artists and audiences, and 100% of the ticket price you pay is returned directly to the artists you choose to see.
This year’s festival will feature returning favourites, local showbiz heroes, and performers from across Canada and around the world, including Australia, the UK and the US. Stay tuned for the complete festival program, which will be released online in July and in print in August.
