Details: The  35th Annual Toronto Fringe Festival will host over 100 shows in over a dozen indoor venues across the city including a new Launch Party on July 4, KidsFest & Kids Camp and summer fun at the Postscript Patio.

The popular Postscript Patio will be the community hub of the festival. Located in the heart of the Annex, it hosts the festival box office, a full-service bar, food vendors, free entertainment, crafts and activations. Each day of the festival Postscript Patio will host a wide variety of free events including Visual Fringe Art Market, Stitch ‘n’ Sit, UkeZac Ukelele Jam, Silent Disco, stand-up comedy, karaoke and so much more.

Toronto Fringe is also happy to announce the return of the Teen Fringe camp and a brand new KidsFest Day Camp. Teen Fringe is a performing arts program inviting young artists aged 12-17 to train with leading professionals in acting, singing, dancing and writing. The KidsFest Day Camp will give children aged 4-11 the chance to be immersed in the world of theatre with creative performance-based fun. Both programs are supported by long time Fringe donor, Neville Austin.

The 2023 venues for Toronto Fringe will include: Aki Studio, Al Green Theatre, Factory Theatre Mainspace, Factory Theatre Studio, St. Vladimir Theatre, Tarragon Theatre Extraspace, Tarragon Theatre Mainspace, Tarragon Theatre Workspace, Theatre Passe Muraille Mainspace, and Theatre Passe Muraille Backspace, plus new Fringe venues Alumnae Mainstage Theatre and The Tank House Theatre in the Young Centre for the Performing Arts.

New in 2023 is a streamlined box office – all tickets can be purchased online or at one of our two festival box office. There will be no tickets for sale at-the-door at the performance venues, and online sales will remain open until 5 minutes before the show. Multi-show passes can still be used to redeem at-the-door, and customers can pick up a Fringe Festo smartcard at a Festival Box Office to simply tap at the venue.
