Volunteer & Billet
Volunteer for Victoria Fringe Festival 2023!
Calling all old pros and first-timers alike, the festival is just around the corner, and we need you! The Victoria Fringe Festival (August 23 – September 3) is a celebration of theatre from around the world! The festival is powered by an army of over 100 dedicated volunteers, who help out with a wide range of jobs, including:
- program distribution
- box office
- line concierge
- and more!
Our hope is that Volunteers will commit to a minimum of three shifts during the Fringe Festival, and will come to our Volunteer Centre to check-in before your shift or at any other time to enjoy some refreshments and community.
Our Fringe Volunteers receive:
- A Volunteer T-shirt to keep!
- A free 3-Show Volunteer Pass
- Invitations to Artists’ Volunteer Appreciation shows
- an additional 3-Show Volunteer Pass for completing more than 4 shifts during the Festival
If you want to get involved with the theatre, meet artists, see some awesome shows for free, and be an integral part of a big, welcoming, weird community – register to be a volunteer!
Billet for Fringe Artists
What is billeting?
Hosting a Fringe artist or two in your home, also known as “billeting,” is a great way to meet artists from far and wide, be part of the big weird Fringe family, and see great independent theatre for free! Billeting is a key part of making our festival feasible and attractive to touring companies. Performers cover their own travel expenses to get here and are paid in box office receipts. To help support the artists, Intrepid Theatre looks for local hosts who are willing to “adopt an artist” for a couple of weeks, allowing them to stay in their home for free in a spare room or bed.
Artists will begin arriving on August 20th 2023 and may have to stay until September 4th 2023. All festival artists and billeting hosts should be able to provide proof of COVID vaccinations upon request (depending on health orders).
Benefits of billeting for Fringe:
- The choice of a Superpass (1 ticket for every show, for one person) or two 5-show passes.
- Meeting a touring performing artist and becoming a part of the Fringe community!
Many of our hosts return year after year to billet a visiting performer or two – for some people it’s their favourite part of the Fringe. We rely heavily on the generosity of our community, and we hope you will be part of this great experience with us!
Additional information about billeting is in the form below.
