Fringe at Home - Ottawa Fringe Festival - June 25 to July 4

WELCOME TO #FRINGEATHOME!

Despite not being able to gather in person this year, the thought of a June without Fringe was too much to bear! So we’ve partnered with local artists and arts & community organizations – Capital Pride, Ottawa Storytellers, Ottawa School of Theatre, TACTICS – to present a series of free digital events streamed directly to your device. 

So grab your (digital) program, and enjoy some #FringeAtHome!

HERE IS WHERE YOU’LL FIND EACH DAILY EVENT!

Daily Schedule

A Fringe Festival is a forum that unites artists and audiences in a fun, exploratory environment.

The Ottawa Fringe Festival provides all performing artists, both emerging and established, with the opportunity to produce their work – regardless of content, form or style – and makes the Festival as affordable and accessible as possible to the members of the community. The Ottawa Fringe Festival’s mission is to empower audiences and to encourage artists to take risks, pursue their visions and develop their skills.

An open-access festival where 100% of ticket sales go to the artists. Nobody curates the Ottawa Fringe Festival. Ottawa Fringe rents the venues and programs the festival by lottery. Every show is independently produced and more artists get into the program by submitting a Bring Your Own Venue show (BYOV).

→ Since 1997, the Ottawa Fringe Festival has returned more than $1.8 million to independent artists.
