Get ready to be entertained down at Granville Island this week as the exciting, hilarious and most entertaining of all the alternative independent Festivals is about to begin…welcome back Vancouver Fringe Festival. The festival runs from September 5th to the 15th.
The Fringe is a fantastic way to explore Vancouver’s own Granville Island and to really make the most of its Arts culture that is spread all around the Island, and this is one of the best ways to see out the Vancouver summer with a bang.
This year promises to be quite the bonanza with over 80 performers taking part this year in just 11 days.
Here is a sneak peak of how the festival will unfold during the 11 days of fun!
