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.
