Join Fringe North Festival for a multi-arts experience

The Fringe North Festival, proud member of the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals, is pleased to announce that this year’s festival is fast approaching! The multi-arts experience will take place from August 18 – 21, 2022.

The Fringe Team will be presenting the full lineup of performers and events for the upcoming festival in the following weeks. Audiences will enjoy performances from over 20 local, national and international artists across many different styles and disciplines of art. From drama to comedy, music to dance, and everything in between, Fringe coordinators are confident there is truly something for everyone. Content is uncensored, and audiences can expect raw, exciting, bold creativity.

Fringe North is excited to offer both in-person and digital performances. Artists will perform live at The Sault Ste. Marie Museum. Digital performances can be watched on demand, any time, anywhere in the world.

“We are so excited to offer the first ever hybrid edition of the festival this year,” says Katelyn Townsend, Interim Artistic Producer, “Accessibility is important to us and this format allows the art to be enjoyed in whichever option works best for each individual. Art is one of the greatest forms of connection, healing and fun – all of which are desperately needed after the past few years.”

Starting August 1st, tickets can be purchased online for a maximum of $12, with pay-what-you-can options available. 100 per cent of box office sales goes to the artists, so by purchasing a ticket you will be supporting them directly. Fringe North is committed to compensating artists for their work while understanding the importance of affordable viewing options for audiences.

Marie! To be entered into the draw, find where the Fringe North Fledgling is hiding, snap a selfie, and post it to your social media. For full contest details, visit the web page.
