Hey now, I know how you feel. It’s freaking September 3 and summer came and snuck out quicker than a one-night stand. But it was fun while it lasted and it's time to move on. Thankfully there's the Vancouver Fringe Festival to look forward to, featuring a variety of theatre performances over the course of 11 nights this September 5 - 15.
The event is the largest theatre festival in British Columbia and is produced annually by the First Vancouver Theatrespace Society since 1985. This year the festival features more than 600 performances by 89 artists and shows include drama, comedy, suspense, romance, racy romps and more.
Opening night is getting underway later tonight at 7pm at Performance Works on Granville Island. The evening is hosted by Vancouver comedian and theatre extraordinaire David C. Jones and features exclusive showcases, gourmet appetizers and drinks, live and silent auctions and more. To purchase any remaining tickets be sure to visit the event page.
Don’t forget that the St. Ambroise Fringe Bar is open from 7pm until late every night of the festival in the heart of the Railspur District. Take advantage of food carts, the Camino Lounge, live entertainment and more for the next 11 nights. If you're the type of person that likes to plan ahead, you can view the complete lineup of each night online.
