St-Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival

MainLine Theatre invites Montrealers to join over 65,000 festival-goers who will celebrate diversity, community and artistic freedom from May 29 to June 18. Tickets for the 33rd edition of the St-Ambroise Montreal Fringe Festival are on sale now.

With over 500 performances by 500 artists and 90 companies, this year’s festival is jam-packed with art from around the world, including 12 podcast episodes, and the return of the iconic outdoor site, the Fringe Park with performances by over 40 acts. There’s something for everyone at the FringeMTL with theatre, dance, comedy, puppetry, storytelling, music and even a Mini-Fringe!

“Folks are ready to Fringe again. We’ve already hit $5,000 in box office sales in the first 24 hours!” enthuses Amy Blackmore, Executive and Artistic Director. “The world needs the Fringe community more than ever right now. With the festival’s values of diversity, accessibility and artistic freedom, Fringing makes the world a better place.”

Start your journey at the Fringe-For-All at Club Soda, May 29. Purchase a festival pass in order to see as many of the 90 companies in 21 venues as you want! Grab a St-Ambroise beer or McAdam Urban Cider and catch a band at the Fringe Park. Listen to The Fringebuzz Lab podcast while you walk to your next venue. Consider volunteering! However you want to Fringe this year, remember that the artists keep 100% of their box office, and ticket prices are kept low, so you can see as many shows as your heart desires! The festival wraps at the closing-night party and Frankie Awards at Club Soda on June 18.

FringeMTL is guided by five unique principles centred around diversity, community and artistic freedom. No curation! Artists are chosen by lottery or first applied, first accepted or another equitable method. Artistic Freedom! Artists have the freedom to present anything they want.
