This is a movement! We’re so happy to celebrate World Fringe Day with our fellow fringes across the globe. The FIRST fringe – Edinburgh Festival Fringe – is celebrating their 70th birthday as we celebrate our 20th! And in Canada, the CAFF (Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals) festivals are essentially Canada’s national theatre.
But fear not – there is a strong fringe movement in this country, too. Above is a chart tracking the number of US Association of Fringe Festival member fringes born in each year in the U.S. – and here they are by name!
