about fringe

Showcasing work in every genre you can think of (and a few that might be made up), the Darwin Fringe Festival is a community arts festival with bite.


The Darwin Fringe is an open-access festival that supports the development of the arts community, providing opportunities for all artists to emerge, experiment and showcase new and diverse works in Darwin to local and national audiences.


A supportive, diverse and exciting local arts sector, with opportunities for sustainable artistic growth, attracting local and national interest.

The Darwin Fringe Festival is a bold initiative that excites experimentation, artistic risk, and new creative voices. We support independent and diverse artists to present work that might otherwise not have an audience or presentation platform locally.

The Darwin Fringe is organised and executed by a passionate team of artists and arts lovers dedicated to producing a festival that supports artists and enriches our community. The Fringe creates a vibrant and happening Hub for artists and punters to enjoy, and an exciting and cohesive festival sprawling across the city.
