NXNE is committed to gender equity and BIPOC representation boasting a diverse line-up that reflects the festival’s core theme “Talent is Everywhere”

NXNE makes great music accessible and inclusive to all, in part, by removing the financial barriers.

Fringe Festival

July 3, 2024

The Toronto Fringe is part of the “Fringe movement” – a worldwide network of indie theatre festivals. As the name suggests, the movement is about celebrating under-represented voices and those on the margins of the performing arts world. It’s a festival where anyone can put on any show, without having to pass through a jury – where theatre students can mount their first production outside of school, where emerging artists can get their big break, and where established artists can test out new work. It’s a festival where audiences come for the adventure and the community as much as for the plays themselves.

The Festival takes place across a number of venues; stage concerts are held in several different parks within the area and also along a two kilometre stretch of the Beach mainstreet - Queen Street East.
