About this event

‘Optus presents Fringe Mount Gambier ‘will begin on Friday 22 March, with the vibrant Lift-Off Street Party. Commercial Street vendors will provide delicious food and entertainment and members of the community are encouraged to come and be part of the popular Pied Piper Parade.   The festival will continue with the Showcase event on Saturday 23 March where the Cave Garden will come alive with exciting, free arts activities for everyone to join in, and performances from local and exciting guest artists such as Yummy DeluxeAfter Hours Cabaret ClubBoss Squad CircusZucchini ClanLets Get TrickyLewis Major, Sam McMahon, and many more!   An exciting addition to the 2019 Showcase event on Saturday 23rd is The Little Palais circus tent presented by Bamboozled Productions. The Little Palais will feature performances from GagliardiKatie Wright DynamiteThe Mr Spin Show, and UNO: One of Many.     Keep an eye out for ticketed and free events occurring at venues throughout Mount Gambier until Sunday 31 March.  In 2018 the city came alive as 12,000 people flocked to various shows and performances and this year promises to be even more outrageous and bold.    

Local artist and Fringe Ambassador Louise Adams returns in 2019 to curate the Showcase event on 23 March, and is excited to see the event being so well supported.    

Seeing all our events, free or ticketed, have really strong attendance in 2018 was wonderful – it certainly helps build confidence for artists, venues, local businesses and funding bodies which in turn will help spread the word that we are creating something special here in Mount Gambier,” Ms Adams said.    

“To see talented local artists perform seamlessly alongside nationally acclaimed and experienced Fringe artists from afar was thrilling. So many local artists, venues and audiences pushed themselves out of their comfort zone to embrace Fringe and ultimately that is what a good Fringe Festival should achieve.”
