We’re building a beast and we need your help to bring it to life!
Volunteer applications for 2023 open in mid April.
The 2023 Darwin Fringe Festival takes place between July 14th – 23rd. It hosts events ranging from Theatre to Visual Art to Kids Entertainment, and anything in between. As an emerging community festival, we rely on the support of volunteers to help make the Fringe a reality.
We would like to invite you to volunteer, to seize this opportunity to engage with the arts community, see shows, network, and know in your heart of hearts that you are making a huge contribution to the local arts sector. If this sounds like your cup of milo, please join us as part of the Darwin Fringe Family, and aid us in putting on the best Darwin Fringe Festival yet. Scroll down to find the form.

Arriving in Darwin in 2019, I volunteered for Fringe to find out about local people and culture. Loved it to bits. Always new faces, great interactions with festival-goers, good times. Will be back for more next year. ~ Bill Quinn
A psychedelic cocktail of vampires in crises, bubble blowing buttocks and existential angst. Volunteering at the Fringe was a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes as the marginalised take over our tropical dreams. ~ Kingsley G.
I have volunteered for the Fringe for the past 3 years and every year I’ve found it to be a fun and entertaining Festival that I am proud to be involved with. I have met new people, seem some amazing shows and soaked up the relaxed and arty vibe that showcases our remarkable Darwin talent. I look forward to the 2020 Fringe being even bigger and better! ~ Clare.B
No worries, my favourite thing about volunteering was seeing shows for free i wouldn’t have seen otherwise and meeting interesting people I wouldn’t have met otherwise, like the artists and other volunteers. Then also seeing people I knew at the shows was fun too as you never know who’ll you’ll bump into! ~ Dave
