Unconventional performances in unconventional venues

The Island Fringe Festival is an annual performing arts festival that unites artists and audiences in fun, exploratory environments. We look forward to welcoming artists from PEI, across Canada, and beyond who will showcase comedy, dance, drama, puppetry, and more.

Everything happens in downtown Charlottetown, allowing audiences to easily travel from one venue to the next and see all the action.

Join us next year for the 12th annual Island Fringe Festival.
