Fringe Awards

Fringe Awards

On the final day of the festival, our judges get together to discuss all the awesome events they saw and battle it out amongst themselves to choose those who will be announced at the New Zealand Fringe Awards on Sunday 13th March at a secret and yet to be disclosed venue!

But it’s not really about that at all, is it? Awards schmawards.

The best part of NZ Fringe and this final shindig is the chance for us to get together

and celebrate all the mahi you’ve been putting in this whole time. You made art! And gosh that’s a cool thing! So, put on your fanciest, funkiest, Fringiest GladRags, and whoop it up with NZ Fringe!
