CHOOSE YOUR SHOWS

There are 35 international performing companies in this year's Fringe, most of them are doing six performances over the 12 day festival. You can browse through The Shows, or use the Daily Schedule to see what's on when you're available. Also, check out the Special Events page for previews, one-night-only shows, Fringe-ing for families, aprez-Fringe parties and more - some of these events are Free or Pay-What-You-Can.

GET YOUR TICKETS

View Tickets and Passes for details on how to buy tickets, purchase Fringe Munch Cards, or buy discount 10-show Frequent Fringer Passes!

Tickets and Passes are on sale August 8 by phone at (250) 383-2691 and online. In-person sales start August 22 at the Fringe Kiosk at Pandora & Broad.

We only sell 50% of all tickets in advance, the rest are held for door sales one-hour prior to showtime.

LOVE YOUR LINEUP

For popular shows, you might have to line-up if you don't have advance tickets. This is a normal and healthy part of Fringe-ing. Take this opportunity to ask the people around you what they've seen that's good.
