Auckland Fringe in a nutshell...

  • Auckland Fringe is a festival which ANYONE can be part of (unless they’re doing something illegal, or you're not doing it in Auckland cause, yaknow, it's the Auckland Fringe). 

  • It covers every art form you can possibly think of including theatre, dance, music, comedy, visual arts, digital art, storytelling, spoken word, cabaret, musical theatre, burlesque, street art, street theatre, talks and workshops, activations etc ...

  • Auckland Fringe is here to help. We run workshops for artists to develop their skills, we promote everyone’s shows and venues, and we make a splash on the marketplace.

  • Auckland Fringe runs from 19th February - 3rd March 2019.
    Artists and venues can do a one off or the whole run - whatever suits!
