There are multiple ways to apply to be in the 2020 Toronto Fringe Festival:

- Culturally Diverse Artists Project Lottery
- Accessible Lottery
- Site-Specific Category
WHAT IS THE FRINGE MAIN LOTTERY?
The Toronto Fringe is a non-juried festival, and holds a lottery to program the festival by selecting shows at random in a draw. This draw takes place in the late autumn. In line with all other Fringe Festivals in Canada, The Toronto Fringe does not evaluate the artistic merit of applicants, or the viability of the work – all applicants have the same chance of earning a show slot as the rest of their category. The Toronto Fringe offers multiple Main Lottery categories to apply to, based on the permanent residence of the applicant and duration of show, age demographics of audience, or targeted performance genre. (Examples: Ontario 60 Minutes, Teen Category, KidsFest. More info below.)
If your project takes place in a non-traditional venue, you must apply to our Site-Specific Category (sometimes called bring-your-own-venue) with details about where you want your show to take place and why your venue is the right fit for your show. Site-Specific applications are assessed on a first-come, first-served basis. More details below.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
It only costs $29 to apply to the Main Lottery categories and Site-Specific Category. If drawn, participation fees range from $551-$760, depending on what you have applied to. (Please click on the link below for more information.) Application and participation fees are waived for those applying to the Culturally Diverse Artist Project and the Accessible Lottery.
