For peo­ple who like… orig­i­nal­ity: With 60 eclec­tic shows in a dozen down­town venues, risk and re­ward go hand-in-hand.

In­sider’s Scoop – Pa­trick Gau­thier, Fes­ti­val Di­rec­tor:

“Not even Ottawa Fringe staff have seen th­ese shows be­fore! Fringe is open-ac­cess. ere are no cu­ra­tors. In fact, we draw names from a bingo wheel to de­cide who will win a spot in one of the fes­ti­val’s venues. And then more artists sub­mit Bring Your Own Venue shows.”

Can’t Miss: Fringe is all about dis­cov­ery. ere are no hits and misses. Choose from the ab­surd to drama, com­edy to youth theatre, clowns to clas­si­cal.

For the Kids: ere are al­ways some fam­ily-friendly odd­i­ties, but check the lineup first. Some shows may be too fringe for young minds.

Lo­cal Wis­dom: Buy a mul­ti­show pass. Fringe pro­duc­tions are short but sweet, and va­ri­ety is the spice of this fes­ti­val's life.
