The New Zealand Fringe Festival

That’s the New Zealand Fringe Festival. It’s crazy, vibrant, bizarre, challenging, and inspiring. The programme features an outstanding line-up of 160 local and international artists. Running since 1990, the New Zealand Fringe has grown to become a vital training ground for creative young artists and a showcase for talent.

The city will be abuzz with people as multiple venues host shows throughout the three-week programme. Most of the city’s theatrical spaces are being utilised, plus some you might not expect. Martin Luckie Park in Berhampore, and Campbell Park in Paekākāriki are two of the more surprising Fringe spaces. 

As usual, anything is possible at Fringe. You’ll be challenged and delighted with what’s on offer.
