The Winnipeg Fringe relies on the help of MANY volunteers every July to make the festival a success! Volunteering is a great way to get the inside experience of the festival – be the first to know about hot shows, cool venues and everything that makes Fringing fun!



Our volunteers are the heart and soul of the Fringe. Volunteers assist patrons and performers, making sure everyone has an enjoyable Fringe experience. Teams of volunteers sell tickets and usher for performances at various venues located in the Exchange District and downtown Winnipeg; help the youngest Fringers with games and activities at Kids Fringe; keep the drinks flowing in the beer tent and patio; assist patrons and answer questions at the Info Tent in Old Market Square plus several other opportunities.
