Because of YOU the Hamilton Fringe has become a place of cutting edge art that reflects and strengthens the fabric of our community.

As we enter our 13th year we are significantly expanding our activities, providing you with MORE opportunities to access affordable cultural programming, host MORE exciting artists from across the country and around the world, and give stage to MORE Hamilton stories from a wide diversity of perspectives.

A modest donation of $13 will go a long way to supporting our growth in this exciting 13th year!


The Hamilton Fringe Festival has partnered with the Hamilton Public Library to present our 2016 Family Series.

Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first served basis. There are currently two 60-minute slots available for the Family Fringe Series.
