The POP UP PATIO series is a weekly performance showcase of local artists, taking place at Arts Court’s outdoor courtyard (67 Nicholas Street).  

We are currently seeking submissions from Ottawa-based artists for short works (about 7 minutes). This multidisciplinary performance series is organized in the Fringe spirit, artists have the freedom to choose whatever content and genre they wish, it can be anything from storytelling, to music, dance, spoken word, clown, etc. 

The #OTTFRINGE POP UP PATIO will be held every Thursday from 7:00-8:00 PM, and will be live-streamed to the Ottawa Fringe Twitch Page (as well as to🥳). 

We are offering a performance fee for artists.
