Fundy FRINGE Festival is part of a growing community of Fringe Festivals throughout North America, dedicated to supporting independent performers and artists and creating affordable spaces through which diverse communities can experience boundary-pushing theatre and other performances.
The 9th Fundy FRINGE Festival is slated for Aug. 16th-21st, 2021. As a member of the Canadian Association of FRINGE Festivals, the body that oversees the use of the trademarked “fringe” name, the plan for the Fundy FRINGE Festival is to showcase over 30 shows over 5 days. Ticket prices are set at $10/show. Shows are typically 30 – 60 minutes long. They incorporate film, dance, performance art, stand-up and more by troupes or by one-man shows. FRINGE presents an open-ended performance proposition.
Saint John Harbour is in the traditional territories of the Wolastoqiyik, Mi’kmaq, and Passamaquoddy First Nations. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet), Passamaquoddy and Mi’kmaq peoples signed with the British Crown in 1760. The treaties did not surrender the territory and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik, and Passamaquoddy title, and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
As part of our partnership with the Saint John Theatre Company Inc., the Fundy Fringe Festival adheres to an anti-discrimination / anti-harassment policy. All artists are expected to adhere to this policy at all times.
