|This article needs additional citations for verification. (June 2007)|
The Vancouver Fringe Festival is an annual alternative theatre festival held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada established in 1985. This event is organized and sponsored by the First Vancouver Theatrespace Society, a volunteer not-for-profit society. The festival is usually staged in September at a number of venues around the city. The most recent festival ran from September 5 to 15, 2013.
The first Vancouver Fringe Festival was held in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood. In 1995, the festival relocated to Commercial Drive. At that time, the festival introduced "bring your own venue", in which performers stage performances at places other than those provided by the festival organizers. As of 2013, the Vancouver Fringe Festival runs 11 days in 25 venues, centred on Granville Island, with other performances around the city.
