Windsor-Walkerville Fringe Festival 2018
July 19 - July 29
The 3rd Annual Windsor-Walkerville Fringe Festival hosted by The Olde Walkerville Theatre, takes place July 19-29, 2018.
This festival features local, regional and international artists performing live theatre, music, dance, comedy, improv and more.
The Windsor-Walkerville Fringe Festival is a member of the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals (CAFF). The Canadian Fringe Festival model is unique in two respects: it guarantees that the artists involved receive 100% of ticket revenue and it does not subject the artist’s work to jury approval or censor it in any way. Theatre companies are selected by non-judicial means and work within the technical guidelines of the Fringe Festival to produce their own art. Festival patrons enjoy physically and financially accessible arts experiences and the opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogues with artist and fellow Fringe patrons.
Artists (writers, performers, director and producers) create theatre designed to be “on the fringe” of mainstream. Uncensored and unjuried, the audience decides how good or bad an act is.
Shows run from 30 -90 minutes, costs as little as $4-$14, run for 9 days, 8 shows, 6 times each, and patrons are encouraged to “rate” the show after viewing it. Guests are invited to sit up close to the stage so that the festival keeps its intimate feeling, and actors can see immediately how their performance is accepted by the crowd. All ticket proceeds go directly to the artists.
A $5 Fringe Button is your pass to the festival and must be worn to gain entry to the theatre for shows for which a ticket is purchased. The Button will also get patrons in the door at the Windsor Walkerville Fringe Festival Launch Party, held Thursday, July 19, 8:00 PM at the Thirsty Butler across the street from the theatre, as well as the Awards Ceremony held after the last show on Sunday, July 29, 2018.
Tickets can be purchased online or at the Fringe Box Office; all ages welcome!
