The Saskatoon Fringe Festival was created and was first launched and produced by 25th Street Theatre Artistic Director Tom Bentley-Fischer. The first (mini) Fringe was held in the summer of 1989 in the Duchess Street theatre venue in Saskatoon, as touring Fringe theatre artists between Winnipeg and Edmonton’s Fringe sought performance opportunities in Saskatoon. In 1990, the Fringe moved to its regular Broadway Avenue venues to great success with a 6000 seat audience in its first full offering of theatre.
Saskatoon now proudly hosts one of the top 10 Fringes in North America by artist earnings and has garnered a reputation as one of the favourites on the Canadian Fringe tour.
Take a walk through the past and check out 30 years of programs, venues, and shows here.
