– If you’re in Edmonton and it’s the middle of August, it’s time for the Edmonton Fringe Theatre Festival. You don’t have to be a theatre connoisseur to enjoy this festival, in fact you just have to be game to try something new.
While you’re combing through the Fringe Theatre schedule, be sure to plan a break at 2 pm on Sunday August 23 to join J.CORE for a pub event at the North Beer Gardens on the Fringe grounds at Calgary Trail and 84th Ave.
J.CORE is a network of young professionals in their 20s, 30s and 40s who are looking to revitalize our Edmonton Jewish community with programs and events that cater to their demographic.
“Take a break on the last day of the Fringe and join us for a beer,” said event coordinator Sarah Dolgoy. “And remember, the first one is on us.”
The festival gets underway in Old Strathcona from Thursday, August 13 – 23, 2015 with 11 days of shows, food and fun.
The 34th annual Edmonton International Fringe Festival, themed ‘SupercaliFRINGEilistic,’ is all about bringing out your inner child.
“Our theme this year speaks to the silly in all of us, the child that relied only on his or her imagination and the pure joy of when we get to play,” said Murray Utas, the artistic director of Fringe Theatre Adventures. “In a word: fun.”
