Welcome

The Dunedin Fringe Festival is a massive celebration of creative energy and ideas by over 200 artists from throughout New Zealand and from around the world. Held in March each year the Festival celebrates experimental work and emerging talent in all art forms. 

The 2014 Dunedin Fringe ran from 13-23 March presenting 50 different events at 30 venues throughout Dunedin. Thousands of people enjoyed events of all types and sizes and you can still check out the programme, find out which artists won Festival Awards, read reviews, see photos in our Gallery and read the Festival Blog which gives you a personal account of what happened!

Artist registrations will open on Monday 8 September 2014 and close on 31 October 2014. More artist information will be uploaded in the near future.
