How to Fringe

How to Fringe

Whether you living in Wellington, or are just visiting - it's your time to join the Fringe! Check out our top tips to make the most of all your Fringe festivities.

Visit the Fringe Box Office.

Come hang out us at the Fringe Box Office! This year we have two box office locations, for easy access no matter what part of the CBD you’re in. The Midland Park box office is open weekdays 11am - 6pm and our Te Auaha box office, located on Dixon Street is open Wednesday - Sunday 11am - 3pm.

Try Our Limited Edition Fringe Beer AND Chocolate.

This year we have TWO consumable Fringe items. The wonderful Garage Project is back with an all new flavour of "Beyond the Pale" AND the incredible Wellington Chocolate Factory has made a limited edition Fringe chocolate!!!!

Grab Some Fringe Merch.

Why not grab an awesome Fringe t shirt to wear while you drink your Fringe beer and eat your Fringe chocolate?! We have some awesome looking merchandise this year which you can get your hands on online or in person at any of the Fringe Box Offices.

Weekly Fringe Events.

Each week of the festival are jam packed with regular weekly shows for you to head along to. Kareokie Dokie is at Fringe Bar every Friday night at 10:30pm, FanFic After Dark is at Fringe Bar every Thursday at 10pm, followed by Late Night Cabaret at 11pm. During the day The Amplifier Show is on from 10am every weekday on Radio Active 88.6FM, AND Personal Filter on Snapchat happens every Saturday during the festival. So. Many. Weekly. Events.

Be Prepared.

Wellington weather changes fast. And Fringe artists don’t always stay in one spot during their shows. Bring a jacket, and wear some shoes you can walk in. You never know what’s going to happen at Fringe.

Take Risks and Have Fun.

Step out of your comfort zone. Go to shows you wouldn’t normally go to. You never know, you just might discover something new about yourself. The most important part of Fringe is getting out there and having fun.


Happy Fringeing!
