On Tuesday, 11 July 2017, we joined other Fringe festivals all over the world in celebrating World Fringe Day!
It was day to celebrate the very idea of a 'Fringe', which was first introduced to the world by the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 70 years ago. The concept of a 'Fringe' was born as a more democratic alternative to curated festivals, with an open access model allowing for creative freedom across a broad range of artforms.
Here at Adelaide Fringe, we celebrated and paid hommage to our big sister, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, with a celebration featuring a traditional Scottish dance called a 'cèilidh'.
We'd love to see your favourite Fringe memories, so use #worldfringeday on your social posts to share them with us!
The revelers on the night wished the Edinburgh Festival Fringe a happy 70th birthday - here's to 70 more!
And our friends at illuminart made this incredible animation celebrating 70 years of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe's program covers! #CultureisGREAT
