The Sydney Fringe Festival is the largest independent arts festival in NSW. We are a cultural industries organisation supporting the next generation of producers, artists and social entrepreneurs working year-round to raise Sydney’s profile as a vibrant global city.
Growing each year in footprint and diversity, we are Sydney’s festival. With events spread across 24 postcode areas of the city, the festival celebrates the amazing work of local independent artists, art makers and performers. Inviting audiences to visit undiscovered parts of the city for new experiences and contributes over $11million in economic impact.
We activate Sydney in ways that push the boundaries of what is possible. We work year-round with our partners to think outside the box and find lasting solutions to enable more cultural space to open, and existing spaces to flourish. We activate unused and underutilised space, creating pop-up and temporary venues transforming the city scape for audiences to explore something truly unique each September.
Now more than ever Sydney needs it’s Fringe Festival, and Sydney Fringe is perfectly primed to present the innovative, dynamic and nimble activity that is required to reactivate our city as we enter the recovery phase of the Covid-19 pandemic. I do hope you will join us.
