AUGUST 24 – SEPT 4, 2022


With the easing of restrictions, the Victoria Fringe returned with new dates and new ways to Fringe in 2021. Running August 13 – September 24, the 2021 Victoria Fringe hosted both live and online shows and experiences, and adapted to changing Provincial Health Orders as required. The Fringe that Victoria knows and loves looked different last year, but we were thrilled to be able to return to live theatre and showcase the unjuried and uncensored work of independent artists over 6 weeks last summer.

A Vancouver Island festival tradition for more than three decades, Victoria Fringe Theatre Festival takes over downtown Victoria BC each summer for a celebration of live performance from around the world, featuring an eclectic mixture of spoken word, drama, musicals, dance, comedy, magic, theatre for young audiences and more at venues across the city.

We have reimagined this year’s Victoria Fringe, and you’ll notice that it will look and feel different than any other year. We want the Fringe experience to be as safe and enjoyable as possible for everyone involved — artists, staff, volunteers and you, the audience.

The 2021 Victoria Fringe will run over 6 weeks, with 2 or 3 in-person shows at The Metro Studio each week, and digital shows on-demand online. Each week has new shows for you to choose from!

This year, you don’t need a Fringe Button to see a show. But, you can buy one of two collectible 2021 Victoria Fringe Buttons or a Victoria Fringe Tote Bag. We will donate 5 from each tote sold to the Megan Newton Memorial Scholarship and 5 to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society. Check out our merch store at

Seating at The Metro Studio is cabaret tables and single seats on tiered risers. The venue capacity is 72.

All tickets are sold in advance. Tickets for in-person shows will be sold by table of two or four, or single seats. Tickets for on-demand online shows give you access to watch the show anytime during the show dates, with a link and password that is emailed to you.
