As one of the leading arts festivals in the world, Adelaide Fringe has the privilege of creating one of the most thrilling, inclusive and impactful arts festivals in the world - something we couldn’t achieve without our dedicated volunteers. We want to take this opportunity to say thank you to the 145 Fringe Vollies who contributed 2,022 hours to make last year’s season so successful. To you and every volunteer who has participated in previous years, you make it all possible.
If you’re considering returning as a volunteer or want to convince a friend to become part of the Fringe family, here are 4 reasons why being a Fringe Vollie is an experience like no other.
