Head to the heart of the festival in Old Market Square and enjoy free and "pass the hat" entertainment. The historic cultural hub located in the city's Exchange District is where locals and visitors gather to enjoy incredible music, talented street performers, tasty food options, beverage pavilions and merchant vendors.

RECHARGE AND RELAX

Fringers can drop by and relax on our two licensed patios and relax in between shows or after a long day of Fringing with a cold beer, cooler or glass of wine.

While you're recharging in the shade, you can also enjoy entertainers and musicians on the Outdoor Stage, and satistfy your appetite with tasty items from our diverse group of food vendors.

SUPPORT THE ENTERTAINERS

We ask you to say thanks to the talented street performers and rocking local bands on the Outdoor Stage. Since access to Old Market Square is free, our performers rely on donations from generous audiences like you - so make sure to give back when they pass the hat!

WASHROOMS AND ATMS

The festival provides public washrooms and a changing station at Old Market Square 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 patios and food vendors only accept cash, ATMS are available inside the Info Tent in the Red River College Courtyard, in the Beer Tent and outside the entrance to the Patio.

PET POLICY

We love our furry four-legged friends, but we recommend you leave your pets at home. The festival isn't animal friendly (hot pavement, crowded atmosphere that may overwhelm your pet), and festival goers may not be comfortable around pets. Our goal is to keep the festival safe and comfortable for all visitors.Please note that service dogs are allowed.
