World Fringe Day is an international day of celebration that will take place on Tuesday 11 July. More than 200 fringes from across the world will join together on World Fringe Day to reflect on the collective power and worldwide reach of the fringe movement. Fringe participants and audiences are invited to take part on the day, by sharing their love for all things fringe on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
2017 is the 70th anniversary of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world’s first fringe. Over the last 70 years, the spark which was ignited in Edinburgh in 1947 has circled the globe and the fringe model has been emulated from Australia to France, Canada to Prague, South Africa to Brighton, China to Brazil, and everywhere in between.
