The St-Ambroise Montreal FRINGE Festival celebrates creativity without limits. It is an annual international multidisciplinary festival that offers more than 800 performances of theatre, music, comedy, dance, spoken word by over 500 performers. Some 60,000 patrons visit this bilingual festival annually attending shows created by artists from all over the world.

In Canada, all FRINGE Festivals are members of the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals. Together, we follow a unique model built on four principles:

  1. No Artistic Direction. Artists are selected by lottery or on a first-come, first-served basis.
  2. No Censorship. Artists have complete freedom to present ANYTHING.
  3. Accessibility to artists. Anyone can apply to the lottery and the fees are kept low.
  4. Accessibility to audience. Ticket prices are kept low & 100% of the ticket price is returned to the artists.
