It’s Time for Fringe Fun – The Fringe Theatre Festival Aug 22nd to Sept 1st – Over 300 performances!

Do you love amateur theatre? Check out the 27th Annual Victoria Fringe Theatre Festival running from August 22nd and September 1st. 11 days of comedy, drama, dance, spoken word, musicals and physical theatre – over 300 performances at 11 venues! Most shows are adult-oriented, but there are also shows at the FamilyFest Fringe for young children and families.

Fringe shows are non-juried and independently produced. That means that you get to decide which shows are good and tell others, or ask around to find out what other people are enjoying. Pick up a printed program at the Intrepid Theatre office at 1609 Blanshard Street, visit, or download the app to read about the different performances.

100% of ticket sales go to the performers. To attend simply buy your $6 Fringe Button and then tickets online, by phone or at the door for the performances you want to see. Each performance costs between $7 and $11. You can also get a 5-show pass for $57.

If you need accommodation while taking in the Fringe Festival, choose Chateau Victoria as your place to stay. We are close to many of the venues, and our newly renovated Traditional Rooms are the perfect place to relax after a day of fringing.
