2019 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. This year, a record number of votes were cast – thanks to all of who you voted!

Congrats to all 47 shows who took part in the 2019 Victoria Fringe Festival, and the nearly 250+ volunteers who helped power the Fringe. Big shout-out to our “Volunteer of the Year” Matt Garvey and “Spirit of the Fringe” winner Chris Gabel!
