The St-Ambroise Montréal Fringe Festival is the city’s summer block party of theatre, dance, music, comedy, circus and more. With over 800 performances, local and international artists take over the Plateau-Mont-Royal to celebrate years of boundless creativity:
- More than 500 artists performing in 20-plus venues, including several “OFF Fringe” ones.
- The famous Fringe-For-All sneak-peek preview night: all local companies take the stage for two-minute teasers of their show. Admission is free.
- Fringe Park, at the corner of Saint-Laurent Boulevard and Rachel Street, is where patrons and artists gather to see live performances and share tips about shows. It’s free and open to the public!
The Fringe celebrates diversity, accessibility and artistic freedom and remains one of the most affordable entertainment options in town: ticket prices are capped at $15 this year and 100% of that ticket price is returned to the artists onstage.
