An annual two-and-a-half week extravaganza of music, dance, visual arts, theatre, literature, film and performance, in which one can view hard-to-see shows. The Festival transforms theatres, parks and public spaces across the city and creates a home for artists to come play, share and create. Check the programme!
Pride Parade starts at 2:00pm on Sunday June 25. Ten days of celebration are turning streets into parades, parks into parties and strangers into friends. Over 1.2 million people from around the world. The Festival ends with the Parade starting at the corner of Church St and Bloor, and going down Yonge St to Yonge-Dundas Square.
It's big. 350 performances with over 1,500 musicians performing at approximately 40 locations around Toronto. The heart of the Festival is now located at Nathan Phillips Square in the heart of downtown Toronto with an impressive 1,200 seat fully-licensed Mainstage Marquee and outdoor stage, and where many events are offered free to the public.
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.
