Hamilton Fringe Festival seeking vendors for its returning summer event


Published June 7, 2021 at 10:37 pm


Organizers of the Hamilton Fringe Festival are looking for farmers’ market vendors for its summer performance event.

The Fringe Club Patio will be located in the parking lot of Bridgeworks Event Space at 125 Barton St. West from 12 to 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 18.

“The majority of vendors must sell food, but there is some space for local crafters,” according to the festival website.

Applications are due before June 17 and can be submitted online.

Hamilton Fringe is back this summer with a whole new schedule of online and outdoor and safely distanced programming for 12 special days in July.

Tickets and passes for the performance festival that will run from July 14-25, 2021, are currently on sale.

This year, the event features a mix of pre-recorded, on-demand showcases as well as live virtual performances and programming for people of all ages and tastes.

“This summer, the Hamilton Fringe Festival will share the biggest offering of unabashed and unjuried theatre produced right here in Hamilton,” the festival’s website said.

“There will be something for everyone in the family––for kids, teens, and adults in every genre––so we hope you cast to your TV, tune into your laptop, or order to your door an experience that is sure to remind you of the human conditions in all its heartfelt, funny, and fringy forms.”

Skip the Glitches is also back this year and allows for patrons to order a 20-minute ‘theatrical curbside delivery series,’ right to their front door.

More than 30 theatre companies and dozens of artists have come together to develop this year’s roster of entertainments and events.

Tickets are offered in a tiered pay-what-you-can-afford pricing model, ranging from $5 to $20 along with a variety of multi-show pass options.

“As always, 100% of ticket revenue is paid directly to artists,” the website said.

Hamilton’s Fringe festival launched in 2003 and has traditionally offered in-person programming in the summer throughout the city.

For last year’s event, organizers pivoted programming to a heavily virtual format due to the pandemic.
