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 take in all the action.

Join us in August for the 12th annual Island Fringe Festival.

Volunteer for The Island Fringe Festival!

We rely on the help of MANY volunteers to make the festival a success!
Volunteering is a great way to get the inside experience of the festival–
be the first to know about
hot shows, cool venues and everything that makes Fringing fun!


No matter your skillset or interests, there is something here for you!
