FREE All-ages event
FringeKids Fest 2017
  • Dates: Aug 26, 2017
  • Location: Market Square

Join us in Market Square from 11am-4pm on August 26 for this perennial favourite!

This action-packed, interactive (and free!) event introduces young Fringers to live performance and unleashes their creativity. Paint the giant cardboard castle, craft your own costume, listen in for Drag Storytime, interactive art projects, watch live music and interactive performances, enjoy the roving costumed performers and more. This inclusive, fun event for the whole family celebrates Fringe in all its forms and its ability to build artistic and cultural bridges.


12pm PUENTE Theatre will be performing songs from their rollicking puppet musical, Gruff at the Victoria Fringe

1pm Live-action Drag Story Time with Persi Flage and friends, followed by a Lip Sync Battle!

3pm Great Aunt Kiki’s Weird and Wonderful Musical Stories
Aunt Kiki will provide a hilarious and completely interactive story-telling session, taking improv cues from her audience. If you enjoy the ridiculous and laughing still your stomach aches, join the fun!! Warning: possible flyby by a giant Chungalolo (centipede) who followed her home from Zimbabwe in 1989. It’s easy to spot; it’s a florescent pink! We will keep it at bay by calling out his name at random and singing his blues song very loudly.

Roving performances from Puppet Master Tim Gosley, Fringe favourites The Birdmann and Egg, and Lost & Found Puppet Co..

Featuring interactive crafting activities including mask making, the famous cardboard castle, Nature Sketch with the Robert Bateman Centre, and collaborative canvas painting with Andrea Soos from Integrate the Arts Festival.
