2018 Pick of the Fringe Awards

Every year, the audiences votes for their favourite Fringe shows in the Pick of the Fringe Awards, in a variety of categories and we hand out the hand-made awards on the closing night of the festival.

Congrats to all 47 shows who took part in the 2017 Victoria Fringe Festival, and the nearly 250+ volunteers who helped power the Fringe. Big shout-out to our “Volunteers of the Year” Maggie Caravaca and Andrew Clark!
