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, in accordance with the four criteria set out by the Canadian Association Of Fringe Festivals (CAFF):
The 10th Fundy FRINGE Festival will take place Aug. 21st – 26th, 2023. Celebrate our ten-year anniversary with us in Uptown Saint John. All venues are centred around our Hub at 112 Princess St. Our venues are all less than a 2-minute walk from there!
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 100 shows in 7 days.
Ticket prices are set at $10/show. Shows are typically 30 - 60 minutes long. They incorporate theatre, dance, performance art, stand-up comedy and more performed by companies or by solo artists.
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.
Anti-Discrimination / Anti-Harassment Policy
As part of our partnership with the Saint John Theatre Company Inc., the Fundy FRINGE Festival adheres to an anti-discrimination / anti-harassment policy. Artists are expected to always adhere to this policy, as are the Festival’s staff and volunteers.
