Toronto Fringe has revealed the programming for its 36th annual festival, featuring 77 shows across 16 venues in the city.

Known for featuring performances of eclectic styles and genres, this year’s Fringe will include eight shows geared specifically toward kids and teens, seven shows in unconventional venues, and dozens of unique offerings, including dance pieces, musicals, puppet shows, and more.

This year’s festival will also include a launch party and parade on July 2, as well as an artisan market, the Theatre Entrepreneurs’ Network and Training (TENT) program, and the New Young Reviewers program (which, as in previous years, will include the publishing of participants’ reviews in Intermission).

And, of course, the Fringe Patio is back this year, along with the KidsFest Club for the littler Fringers.

One hundred per cent of all ticket revenue goes directly back to the artists. This year, the Fringe is running a fundraising campaign to ensure the longevity of the festival for years to come. You can learn more about this initiative here.

A full list of 2024 programming is available on the Toronto Fringe website.
