World Fringe Day
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe was the world’s first Fringe back in 1947. Fast forward 70 years there are now more than 200 Fringes worldwide. 2017 marks 70 years since the birth of the Fringe concept.
Join us on World Fringe Day on 11 July 2017 as we celebrate Fringe reaching this incredible milestone, and the cultural connections that transcend national boundaries, demonstrating the connectivity of arts and culture through Fringes.
