So much to see and do…

Make the most of your Fringe experience with these suggestions:

  1. Start at the Fringe Hub: The Bus Stop Theatre. The Bus Stop Theatre is also the Halifax Fringe Festival Main Box Office. From 10 AM to close you’ll find someone there who can help you out. Pop by for a visit! Pick up a guide, hear the festival buzz, and buy a ticket (or 3!).
  2. Stay Informed. Between the Festival Guide, our website, and social media (Facebook: Halifax Fringe Festival; Twitter & Instagram: @halifaxfringe), you’ll know everything we know. Our incredible media partners, The Coast and Halifax Noise can tell you the rest – check out thecoast.ca for reviews!
  3. Take a Chance. The wonder of the Fringe is that you never really know what you’re going to see. The most talked about shows may not be your cup of tea, and the hidden gems can sometimes be the most fun. Make sure you chat up your neighbour in line or the artist in the bar to uncover that buried treasure. Know your neighbourhood – once you’ve created your list of plays to attend, check our venue map to find each theatre and site-specific location. There’s limited parking around many Fringe sites, so we suggest you walk, cycle, or use public transit.

Want to take part in 2019?

2019 will mark the 29th anniversary of the Halifax Fringe Festival. The Fringe has taken place each and every year in Halifax since 1990. It always has been and always will be an entirely open access festival which means that absolutely anyone can stage a show or event.
