Thank your for your patience while we worked out the details of this upcoming festival. Last month we announced that the 2021 Toronto Fringe Festival would be a digital-only festival. You may read that full announcement here.
The 2021 Digital Toronto Fringe Festival will take place July 21 - 31, 2021 online at fringetoronto.com.
While we are disappointed that we will not be able to gather again in-person this summer, we are looking at this upcoming Digital Fringe as an opportunity to innovate. Plus - we've got our fingers crossed for some sort of outdoor gathering or patio, so please stay tuned for details!
Today, Digital Lottery applications open. Applications will be accepted in two categories this year: Main Digital Lottery and KidsFest Digital Lottery. The winners will be selected by random draw during a Lottery Livestream on Facebook Live, at noon on March 31, 2021.
50% of Slots Held for BIPOC Artists
For the 2021 Digital Fringe, the festival has committed to reserving at least 50% of available slots for artists who are Black, Indigenous, or Persons of Colour. A two-phase lottery draw will be used to achieve this goal.
