Youth Access at the Fringe

This outreach initiative offers free rush tickets to Fringe events for young people 18 years and under. The Fringe partners with the Hamilton Board of Education and a variety of local community service organizations to distribute the passes to youth who face barriers to accessing cultural activities in Hamilton. This program opens up Fringe activities to a wide and diverse range of young people, some of whom may choose to get further involved in the festival in future years.

If you are interested in learning more about how your community organization can access these passes for youth in your community, please contact Natalie Hickey, Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator at volunteer@hamiltonfringe.ca.

The Fringe would not be possible without the support of our funders and government partners. Learn more here.
