Events Description

Celebrate the arts at a 10 day community festival in the heart of the Broadway District of Saskatoon.

6 Venues. 10 Days. 33 Plays. 231 Performances. There’s only one place to be this August 1st to 10th—from the hottest shows to the coolest street performances, the 2019 Nutrien Fringe Theatre Festival delivers summer fun for the whole family!

We have 33 different plays this year! That’s 33 unique experiences in 231 performances available for you to discover. That’s not including Fringe After Dark, buskers, musicians, and other street performers. Don’t forget about our hundreds of artisan and food vendors. Oh …and did we forget to mention that the Fringe takes place in the heart of Broadway? All of your favourite shops, bars, and eateries are open too!

This summer, we encourage you to step out of the familiar and take a chance! Try a new food. Randomly select a play and go see it. Allow yourself to wander, explore, and discover something brand new! Leave your regular life at the entrance and become an adventurer for the day. You never know, the spirit of the Fringe is contagious—you just might find a new passion or hobby, a delicious cuisine, or make new friends.

On the Street

Come out and play after the play! We’ve packed 4 City Blocks with fun for all ages— from kiddies to foodies, we’ve got something for everyone! Expect amazing street performances, masterful musicians, and exciting programming.

Do you have a keen eye for unique items, handicrafts, and art for sale? Come and shop without the drop! With over 100 vendors and 20+ food vendors, you can refuel, recharge, and keep going!

Join us and discover the magic of Nutrien Fringe Theatre and Street Festival as 50,000 outdoor attendees turn Broadway Avenue into one of Saskatoon’s favourite summer festivals!
