WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Fringe Theatre is back on the streets of downtown Winnipeg and it’s here to stay until July 24th.

The festival hosts more than 170 companies internationally with different plays, shows, and events.

Some repeat customers and some new, festival goers agree there’s a little something for everyone at the 12 day event.

One festival attendee said this is their 18th one explaining, “Some people count down to Christmas, I count down to Fringe Festival every year.”

Not everything takes place indoors either, the Fringe takes over Old Market Square in the Exchange District. Events take place for Fringe everyday until July 24th from noon to midnight.

An outdoor stage, music, street performers, and Kids Fringe are just a few of the things attendees can look out for.
