The organisers are promising to bring life to Sydney suburbs with a diverse program spanning theatre, music, comedy, visual art, film, dance, circus, and poetry. The 2019 set-up will feature more than eight festival hubs across the city, including City Tatts Hub, Touring Hub, Western Sydney Fringe, Circus Hub, Dance Hub, Emerging Artist Hub and a brand new Paddington Hub.

Since Sydney Fringe Festival has always prided itself for being an event for everyone, it has a whole program for little Fringers and their families to explore the magic of arts together. Fringe Kids will kick off with a massive FREE outdoor performance by the Fringe Kids Ambassador DJ Jazzy. So get your dancing shoes ready!

We have handpicked the best events for your little art connoisseurs to enjoy. Some are free, the others are ticketed and said to be selling out fast. The festival is running from 1 to 30 September 2019.
