Volunteer for Victoria Fringe Festival 2022!

Calling all old pros and first-timers alike, the festival is just around the corner, and we need you!

The Victoria Fringe Festival (August 24 – Sep 4) is a celebration of theatre from around the world! The festival is powered by an army of over 150 dedicated volunteers, who help out with a wide range of jobs, including box office, tech crew, promotions, info kiosk and more. For each shift you work, we thank you with a free ticket to some sweet indie theatre. If you want to get involved with the theatre, meet artists, be part of a big, welcoming, weird community, or see some free shows – sign up to volunteer!

Billet for Fringe Artists

Artists from all over Canada and the world travel to Victoria every summer to be a part of The Fringe, and some of them need a place to lay their head after Fringe-ing their hearts out. If you can host a visiting artist, please complete our billeting form. You get a pass as a thank you so you can catch as much of the festival as you want, and maybe make a new friend.


If you have any questions about Fringe volunteer opportunities, please don’t hesitate to contact us! Ask for Alena at the Intrepid office (250.383.2663) or email us at volunteer@intrepidtheatre.com. We hope to hear from you soon!

Every year, Intrepid Theatre Company serves up more than four hundred local and international performances of brand new plays, musicals, stand-up comedy, improv, magic, circus artists, monologists, theatre for young audiences, puppeteers, dance and physical theatre shows to hungry audiences in Victoria BC.

How do we do it? We rely on more than three hundred festival and event volunteers to help sell tickets, answer questions, bartend, host artists, distribute posters and programs, collect surveys, set up and run spectacular special events for all ages, and deliver stuff by bike and car.

You can help!  Our volunteer program is festival-based, so pick a festival or time when you’re most available and we’ll match you up with a job based on your skills and interests.

  • May:  UNO Fest (solo performance)
  • February: OUTstages (queer theatre)
  • August-September: Victoria Fringe Theatre Festival (anything goes)

We create a fun and friendly environment for volunteers, where you’ll receive training, support from our staff, and special volunteer perks – such as Fringebucks, you get one Fringebuck for every shift you work. Fringebucks are valid for one admission to a show of your choice at any Intrepid Theatre festival, they never expire, and you can share them with friends.
