The Guelph Fringe Festival will run August 8-11, 2024. A total of 15 individual companies will perform at three venues over the course of the four-day festival, for a total of 45 performances in Downtown Guelph.


As a proud member of the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals, we also support its five guiding principles:

  • Participants will be selected on a non-juried basis, through a first-come, first-served process, a lottery, or other method approved by the Association.

  • Artists will receive 100% of the tickets and pass price, as agreed upon between the artists and festivals (less any applicable government taxes). Festivals may add a surcharge to tickets and passes. Tickets to the Guelph Fringe Festival are $12 that goes directly to the artist with a $3 festival fee to help with the costs of running the event.

  • Fringe Festival producers have no control over the artistic content of each performance. The artistic freedom of the participants is unrestrained.

  • Festivals must provide an easily accessible opportunity for all audiences and all artists to participate in Fringe Festivals.

  • Festivals will promote and model inclusivity, diversity and multiculturalism, and will endeavour to incorporate them into all aspects of our organizations including our boards, staff, and volunteers.

The only constraints on material or content are the consideration of legality and the health and safety of all those involved, including artists, staff, volunteers and audiences. The Guelph Fringe Festival reserves the right to enforce necessary safety measures.

Volunteer with The Guelph Fringe Festival!

Guelph Fringe couldn't happen without the generous time and effort that our volunteers offer. We are on the lookout for a fun-loving, dedicated group of folks for 2022, for roles such as box office/front of house, ushering, and general running around. Please feel free to volunteer for an evening, a day, or the whole weekend! We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities - if you're under 18, we'll need you to get parental or guardian consent.
