FRINGE FESTIVAL CLOSES WITH ANOTHER RECORD YEAR
Ticketed attendance, box office revenue up from 2014
The Winnipeg Fringe continues its winning streak, as a record number of performing companies, shows, sellouts and ticket sales contributed to the biggest Fringe Festival yet.
Indoor attendance for the 2015 festival totaled 108,721 compared to 104,884 in 2014. Approximately 80,000 people took in the free live music and entertainment at Old Market Square. Kids Venue also set a new attendance record of 4,640, which was a 22 per cent increase from the 3,804 children and families who attended in 2014.
On the last evening of the festival, the Manitoba Association of Playwrights (MAP) presented the Harry S. Rintoul Award for best new Manitoban play to Sydney Hayduk and Justin Otto for their work The Manic Pixie Dream Girl.
Thanks to all for a wonderful festival!
