That was Then, This is Fringe

One of Edmonton’s favourite summer festivals is back for 11 days of weird and wonderful entertainment. The Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival is an annual arts festival with concerts, buskers and indoor theatre at 45 venues in Old Strathcona from August 11-21.

The theme–That was Then, This is Fringe–is a nod to the 80s and a celebration of the festival’s 35th anniversary in the city. To mark the milestone, we’ve teamed up with the Fringe to offer the ATB Financial Golden Ticket Contest, with 100 Fringe tickets, VIP parking and more to the winner, Heather Drouin, announced on August 11.

In a surprise announcement, ATB and the Fringe are continuing the contest throughout the Fringe for a chance to win an ATB Financial Golden Ticket for 2017 along with a $250 prepaid MasterCard. There will be 35 opportunities to enter throughout the festival. The winner will be revealed on August 19 at the Friday Night Fire Show.

The Fringe’s impact on the arts and culture community in the city is vast, and is the reason why ATB is proud to be the lead sponsor of this iconic Edmonton event. We’re also a supporter of the Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, National Music Centre, Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts, Grande Prairie Street Performers Festival, and other arts events and institutions across the province.
