This Month is the Month

Black artists have influenced Canadian culture for decades, and yet have not been given the same opportunities as their white counterparts. This sort of systematic racism needs to stop. Make time to recognize Black artists, celebrate Black artists, and demand to see Black artists on stages and in theatres in your communities.

Staying in Touch

Island Fringe Festival is entering its 10th year and we are thrilled! We have become an Island staple, bringing innovative, accessible, unconventional shows to PEI every summer. Working within COVID restrictions, we are proud to safely offer you an in-person festival for our 10-year anniversary. With ongoing travel restrictions, the 2021 Fringe lineup will exclusively feature Island artists. To make our 10th anniversary extra special, we are planning a closing night gala event! This gala will include music, prizes and awards and a COVID-compliant celebration! Does the idea of a Fringe-style gala simply make you want to dance with excitement? This is where you come in. We are asking our steadfast fringe community’s help to sponsor our 10th anniversary gala. Our goal is to raise $3000 through our “$10 for 10 campaign”. We are seeking $10 donations from 300 supporters. In exchange, we will recognize you as a “Star Supporter” with your name on our wall of donors on display at the awards gala. A commemorative gift in recognition of your contribution will also be available. You can either click:https://www.paypal.com/donate/?cmd=_s-xclick…to donate via Paypal, or send an e-transfer to islandfringe@gmail.com (please make your security answer ‘starfish’). Anonymous sponsors can identify this preference in the memo section, or, include the name of an Island Fringe Festival show, event or performer from the past that you want to honour and that name will be placed on the wall. This campaign runs until July 10th, 2021 Thank you for supporting the 10th Island Fringe Festival!!
