WASHROOMS AND ATMS

The festival provides public washrooms at Old Market Square inside the Okanagan Spring Beer Tent and on King Street beside the Red River College Paterson GlobalFoods Institute. We encourage Fringers to be conscientious and use festival facilities in lieu of surrounding businesses. Since our beverage pavilions and food vendors only accept cash, ATMs are available inside the Info Tent in the Red River College Courtyard, inside the beer tent and outside the entrance to the Liquor Mart Patio.

SHOW YOUR GRATITUDE

Get into the spirit of the Fringe and support the talented street performers and line-up of great local bands on the Outdoor Stage. During performances, toss in some cash when they “pass the hat.” Since access to Old Market Square is free, our performers rely on the donations they receive from generous audiences like you – so make sure to give back and say thanks!
