2021 Digital Toronto Fringe Festival

Hosted by Toronto Fringe

Fringers! The Toronto Fringe will be moving forward this summer with an online festival. The Digital Toronto Fringe runs July 21 - 31 and features on-demand Fringe content, live digital events, watch parties, digital lobby gatherings, a virtual patio and more!

During the festival, Fringe companies will present pre-recorded video and audio pieces for audiences to enjoy as part the Fringe On-Demand series. Audiences will access content on fringetoronto.com with the purchase of an affordable and accessible membership pass. An additional Fringe Primetime series will offer audiences a chance to experience the thrill of a live and interactive Fringe show online.

This year will not be a stop-gap. The Digital Fringe will be a celebration of the Fringe Movement, with the only difference being its location: online. The Digital Fringe will connect to the worldwide Fringe community and widen the networks of indie artists in Toronto, offer practical solutions for access measures and involvement of Deaf and disabled artists, and implement recommendations from an ongoing Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Audit. The Digital Fringe will prove that the Fringe spirit can live anywhere – whether you log in from your cozy apartment or from a blanket on the beach. Fringe lives everywhere, and this community won’t let a pandemic get in the way of uncensored self-expression. The Fringe lives on.

The On-Demand Series has been extended until August 22nd!

Please note that this extension does not include the POSTSCRIPT and Primetime Series, so make sure to see all the live content before July 31st!


  • All audio pieces will be accompanied by PDF transcript documents that are screen-reader friendly.
  • All videos in our On-Demand series are closed captioned.
  • Primetime events and POSTSCRIPT Live(stream) events will feature Auto-Transcribed Captioning.
