The Toronto Fringe Festival is the city’s number one resource for artists from all walks to challenge their skills, explore fresh ideas, and showcase exciting works.
The Toronto Fringe is a member of the Canadian Association of Fringe ® Festivals (CAFF) and, as such, our summer festival operates under the four guiding principles of CAFF:
- Participants are selected on a non-juried basis, through a lottery or first-come/first-served process.
- 100% of the ticket price is returned to the artist.
- Fringe Festival producers have no control over the artistic content of any show.
- Festivals must provide an easily accessible opportunity for all audiences and all artists to participate.
- The Toronto Fringe routinely sees ticket sales of over 55,000 and returns $400-450,000 to artists annually. Since 1989, we have returned over $5,000,000 to our participants.
To help participants, the festival provides a series of workshops that give artists and companies the tools they need to make their show a success. The Fringe also provides development opportunities through The Fringe Evolution Fund, various community initiatives and Next Stage Theatre Festival (more info on our website).
Companies that are selected to participate in the Fringe Festival are provided with the following: scheduling of performances (seven or eight performances at a variety of times) in a venue equipped with lights and sound, a technician to assist in the running of your show, full professional front of house service, including box office and support staff, festival publicity, 100% of the ticket revenue generated by the company, all in an environment that facilitates an independent creative process.
