Join Fringe fanatic and actress Amy Shostak for a cultural blast of dynamic and innovative theatre during the Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival, North America's oldest and largest fringe festival, located in the heart of Old Strathcona.

With nearly 1,600 local, national and international artists, Edmonton’s Fringe Festival offers more than 1,200 indoor performances across some of the city’s most iconic landmarks, such as ATB Financial Arts Barns, Varscona Theatre and Walterdale Playhouse. Whether a play is on a main stage or a more unique venue, such as a local pub or bookshop, there is something for everyone. Fringe even has special family friendly performances and Theatre for Young Audience shows. And, when you’re not at a show you can take advantage of many outdoor activities, such as live performances on one of their three outdoor stages, buskers, street performers, actors pitching shows across the site, or KidsFringe.

After you've Fringed all you can, you're only steps away from the shops and eateries in Old Strathcona. Cap off a day of fringing on a nearby patio like The Next Act or MEAT. Get your shopping fix at unique Edmonton shops and boutiques like Bamboo Ballroom, Poppy Barley, and Blackbyrd Myoozik.
