Nelson Fringe Festival

Friday 26th April-Sunday 5th May 2019

The Nelson Fringe has a life of its own, and is growing before our very eyes. In four years we have grown from 15 shows and 6 workshops in our first year in 2015 to 42 shows and 15 workshops in 2018. Because of this growth, we are considering a way to keep our festival small and quirky and have no intention to get any bigger in 2019! Because of this, we most likely will be instituting a lottery system for shows from now on. Keep an eye out for more news about this in the coming weeks!

Thank you so much to everyone who took part in NFF2018. We love our audience, performers, visual artists, volunteers, sponsors, audience, supporters, adopters, audience (did we mention our incredible audience?). Nelson you ROCK!

The Nelson Fringe Festival rocks Nelson and it’s the only place you want to be in May. Get on into it!
