Your favourite festival looks a little different this year

The Edmonton Fringe Festival is back for 2021, featuring a blend of live and digital performances from local performers.

With new pandemic protocols in place and some rule changes for a new year, here is what you can expect from your favourite local festival for their 40th anniversary event. 

Fringe 2021: What To Expect

Like other events in a post-pandemic world, the Edmonton Fringe Festival had to rethink the way their event was going to operate this year. That being said, organizers say things will look a little different, with new safety protocols and digital options so everyone can enjoy themselves safely.

Mandatory Masks

Anyone attending a performance inside the theatre venues must wear a mask and socially distance. Festival attendees will not be required to wear masks outdoors. However, Fringe organizers encourage festival goers to wear a mask at crowded outdoor situations like the beer line or when purchasing merch. 

Fewer Shows & Smaller Audience Sizes

For 2021, there will be fewer theatre venues, less shows to choose from (53 in total) and smaller audience sizes. Less people inside the theatres will allow everyone to socially distance and feel comfy for the performance.

What does this mean for festival attendees?

Get your tickets early. Shows will sell out quicker and options will become limited… fast. So, if you have your eyes on a particular show, hop on buying tickets right away.

(You can do that here).

New Rules in the Beer Gardens

This year, festival goers looking to access ATB Park will need a ticket. This will help the Fringe keep crowd sizes manageable. Contact tracing will also be in full effect. So before you get that ice-cold pint, be prepared to supply your name and phone number, just in case. 

Digital Performances

Not feeling up to braving live events just yet? No problem!

For 2021, the Edmonton Fringe has set up Fringe TV for festival goers looking to enjoy from the comfort of their home. There will be dozens of livestream options available. 

Extra Safety Precautions

In addition to the new rules, festival goers can feel at ease knowing there are dozens of extra safety and sanitary precautions in place to help keep everyone safe. All public areas including the bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized between every event.

There will also be more volunteers and staff present to ensure people are following the guidelines. Finally, to give everyone the space they need to have fun, tickets will be limited.
