Event Date: Jun 17, 2021 - Jun 27, 2021
The Ottawa Fringe Festival provides all performing artists, both emerging and established, with the opportunity to produce their work -regardless of content, form or style- and makes the Festival as affordable and accessible as possible to the members of the community. The Ottawa Fringe Festival’s mission is to empower audiences and to encourage artists to take risks, pursue their visions and develop their skills.
An open-access festival where 1005 of ticket sales go to the artists. Nobody curates the Ottawa Fringe Festival. Ottawa rents the venues and programs the festival by lottery. This year, all shows will be available digitally.
Since 1997, the Ottawa Fringe Festival has returned more than $1.8 million to independent artists.
