Windsor-Walkerville Fringe Festival

Jul

Date: Jul 20, 2017 - Jul 30, 2017

Location: 1564 Wyandotte St E, Windsor, ON N9A 3L2

Category: Community Events

The Windsor-Walkerville Fringe Festival is a member of the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals (CAFF). The Canadian Fringe Festival model is unique in two respects: it guarantees that the artists involved receive 100% of ticket revenue and it does not subject the artist' work to jury approval or censor it in any way. Theatre companies are selected by non-judicial means and work within the technical guidelines of the Fringe Festival to produce their own art. Festival patrons enjoy physically and financially accessible arts experiences and the opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogues with artist and fellow Fringe patrons. History of Fringe Fringe Festivals trace their roots to Scotland in 1947 when several theatre companies not invited to participate in the first Edinburgh International Festival staged their shows on the fringe of the official venues, setting up wherever they could find space, finding audiences by word of mouth and succeeding or failing on the strength of their talents alone. The Fringe Mandate The Fringe's mandate is to afford all artists the opportunity to produce their art, regardless of the experience, content, form or style; and to make the event as affordable and accessible as possible for the community. The result is a vibrant and exciting artistic environment where the audiences - not juries - decide which are good shows, the bad shows, and the extravagantly awful shows. Embracing Freedom Embracing this spirit of artistic freedom, the first North American Fringe Festival was established in Edmonton in 1982. Audiences were wildly enthusiastic and the Edmonton Fringe is now second only to the Edinburgh Festival in size. Encouraged by this tremendous success, many cities across Canada and the United States created Fringe Festivals of their own, each with its own distinctive style, but all adhering to the principles of accessibility, affordability and artistic daring.
