Volunteer Appreciation Party and Auction

What better way to end the FRINGE than with a party to celebrate some of it’s most important people; the volunteers. Thank you all for making this one of the most successful FRINGE Festivals we have had in a long time and bringing so much joy to the artists, staff and patrons alike by just being your wonderful selves.


The doors open at 8pm at MainLine Theatre where you can use your leftover FRINGE BUCKS to buy beer and bid on cool auction prizes such as various gift baskets, tickets to shows and many other exciting things.

The auction starts at 9pm and will be hosted by none other than Kenny Streule and your very own Volunteer Coordinator Julie Felix.

For those of you that have a superpass for all the hours you did, you can validate it at the party and get 60 FRINGE BUCKS to use at the auction.

After the auction we will have just one more ALL NIGHT DANCE PARTY with DJ Comms (Sarah Laforce) spinning some sweet tracks.

Pop-Up Gallery: Don’t forget our online catalogue!

This year’s Pop-Up Gallery: Festival Edition was once again a huge success! It was being held at the MAI (Montréal, Arts Interculturels) for one night only and over 30 artists exhibited their work.

To make an addition to this success, we have decided to bring something new this year: an online catalogue! If you haven’t had the chance to visit the Pop-Up Gallery or if wanted some more time to think about purchasing an art piece, here’s your chance to view all of the artists’ works and buy the piece you love online!

The catalogue will be online until June 30, so don’t miss out!

You can find our online catalogue at the following address:

FRANKIE Award Winners of the 2017 St-Ambroise Montreal FRINGE Festival!

June 19, Montreal – The 27th edition of the St-Ambroise Montreal FRINGE Festival came to a close Sunday evening at the historic Club Soda with the festival’s prestigious Frankie Awards and closing night party. Fourteen awards were handed out to FRINGE artists by festival partners.

The Frankie Awards are named after Frank Hopkins, a key benefactor during the festival’s early years of the festival. Frank Hopkins passed away on November 11, 2015, his 93rd birthday. As Frank always did, the awards in his name shine a light of the stand-out productions of each edition.
