The Winnipeg Fringe will not offer in-person indoor programming this summer. With travel restrictions still in place and general uncertainty around in-person performances, we've made the tough decision to offer a digital-only festival. Although this news is disappointing in many ways and for many people, we're heartened by the success of last summer's virtual festival. Stay tuned for details about festival dates and the scope of programming.
“We were so looking forward to artists and audiences getting together to share in the amazing experience that is the Fringe. But we feel it’s best to be cautious and our priority continues to be the safety and comfort of our artists, audiences, volunteers and staff. We’re excited to share digital content with Fringers this summer and we can’t wait for 2022,” said Executive Producer Chuck McEwen.
Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for the festival and its artists.
A huge thank you to Fringe fans, the talented performing artists, Trans Canada Brewing and, of course, Safe at Home Manitoba for a successful winter series. Although we miss the electricity of live theatre, as we're sure you do, we were thrilled to share these wonderful virtual performances with you. Thank you for your continued support!
