Are you ready? IT'S TIME! SUBMISSIONS FOR NELSON FRINGE 2020 ARE OFFICIALLY OPEN! 20 December - 20 January. We can't wait to see you at Fringe this year!
The Nelson Fringe Festival runs annually in the first week of May. It is a nine day celebration of fringey theatre awesomeness - with workshops during the day and performances by night.
The Nelson Fringe has a life of its own, and is growing before our very eyes. In four years we have grown from 15 shows and 6 workshops in our first year in 2015, to 42 shows and 15 workshops in 2018. Because of this growth, we are considering a way to keep our Festival small and quirky and have no intention to get any bigger in 2020! Because of this, we most likely will be instituting a lottery system for shows from now on. Keep an eye out for more news about this!
FRINGE VISION: To draw the theatre community together to connect, grow, share & celebrate
We aim to create a space that nurtures artists. To get the most out of the Nelson Fringe we recommend getting involved in as much of the week as you can. You'll get to meet other artists, forge pathways to collaboration, take part in workshops, showcase your work and celebrate the adventurous art that is being created at this time. It's a week of inspiration and creative upliftment! (aka... summer camp for adult performers, only in winter.)
