The Island Fringe Festival (IFF) is an annual performing arts festival that unites artists and audiences in fun, exploratory environments in Charlottetown. This year’s festival is gearing up to take place from July 31 to August 4, featuring a 10-show lineup from Canada and the US. The possibilities are endless, with absurdity, comedy, dance, drama, and more.

IFF’s 2024 lineup includes: Enchantment (Halifax, NS); Cornflake (Montreal, QC); Furniture Boys (Brooklyn, NY); How It Happened (Charlottetown, PE); How to be a Vase (Charlottetown, PE); Ink Addicted (Orlando, FL); Next: After the Chorus Line (Charlottetown, PE); Short Circuits (Charlottetown, PE); So, an Autistic Priest and a Service Dog Walked into a Bar… (Dorval, QC); and Thinking about a Dog (Charlottetown, PE).

Volunteer recruitment is now underway. Volunteering with the Fringe is a great opportunity for people of all ages to get involved and have fun mounting productions, promoting the festival, and working with artists. To volunteer, email or contact @IslandFringe on social media.

In addition to the shows, this year’s Fringe Festival is planning a series of late-night events that will bring laughter and fun. A complete schedule, list of venue locations, and ticket sales will be available online at the first week of July.
