In preparation for our ninth Festival, the organizers of Fundy FRINGE are in the midst of planning an innovative and safe event for audiences to enjoy this August. In compliance with current Provincial regulations, Festival Director Drew Murdock has decided to limit submissions to artists from the New Brunswick region only.

“Given the uncertainty of the probability of an Atlantic bubble opening up this summer, we felt an NB only festival would be the most considerate option to the artists and planning teams at this time. We look forward to returning to a festival that welcomes regional, national and even international artists once again for the 2022 Fundy FRINGE Festival.” - Drew Murdock, Festival Director
