September 2 - September 12

The Halifax Fringe Festival is an annual performing arts festival. We’ve been presenting an accessible, unjuried, and uncensored festival for the past 30 years. The Fringe includes theatre, music, circus, dance, comedy, education, and more! The festival happens over 11 days in 10+ venues with 55+ productions performing over 350 individual performances. All performances take place in Kjipuktuk/Halifax, with venues spread across the downtown and North End neighbourhoods, allowing audiences to easily jump from one venue to the next while also reaching multiple communities.

100% of the box office is returned to the artists! We use a lottery system that prioritizes festival applications from equity-seeking artists, including (but is not limited to) Indigenous artists, artists of colour, transgender artists, disabled artists, fat artists, and neuro-divergent artists. In recent years, 100% of equity-seeking applicants have received a spot in the festival (and 50% of festival slots are reserved for these artists). We recognize the over-representation of white, cisgender, able-bodied voices in theatre.
