Wait WHAT LOTTERY?

Fringe is an open-access festival. That’s to say, nobody curates the Ottawa Fringe Festival. Instead artists throw their names into a lottery and the winners score a festival venue, technician, box office services, and front-of-house volunteers. More artists add to the program with Bring Your Own Venue (BYOV) shows and all performers keep 100% of their ticket sales.

N.B. Bring Your Own Venue applications will open in the new year. Check back soon for more information or subscribe for an email heads up (tick the “performing opportunities” box).
