Edmonton International Fringe Festival takes place, every year, in August. The old festival that started in 1982 is known as the greatest of its kind in North America. It offers great variety of theater plays and quality original performances.
Thousands of guests fill the city and enjoy, during the ten days of the festival, diverse events which are held in more than 40 halls and tens of street shows. Due to the numerous visitors during the festival days and the high demand for accommodations it is recommended to check hotel rates and book rooms well in advance.
During the festival’s days the city’s streets and alleys turn to theater stages and every place over the city the visitors can enjoy shows performed by local and guests artists.
