We had some amazing shows in this year's Fringe and 100% of ALL box office revenue went back to our artists. This means we rely on donations from supportive patrons and arts enthusiasts to keep the Hamilton Fringe going! The Hamilton Fringe only has a few months until we turn 14 so this means you only have a short time to appear on our #turning13 wall of fame!

If you enjoyed this year's Fringe please consider donating $13.00 as part of our #turning13 campaign

A modest donation of $13 will go a long way to supporting our growth this year and for years to come!


Get your laptops/pen/papers ready! Pull out that old script that needs re-drafting because the Hamilton Fringe New Play Contest will be open for submissions September 12th! First prize is a FREE slot in the 2017 Hamilton Fringe Festival plus $300.00.

Let's get writing! Keep an eye on our website for more details!

Deadline: November 15, 2016
