Dear Fringers,

Thank you to everyone who made the 34th Annual Toronto Fringe Festival so special. It may have been one of our most challenging years to plan, but it has been so worth it to experience the joy and connection between artists, volunteers, staff, and Fringers of all kinds.

We are delighted to report approximately 33,000 tickets were sold with $250,000 in revenue returning to the artists. We were also able to offer 1500 prepaid tickets to artists and community groups to see Fringe shows thanks to the Toronto Arts Foundation, supported by the Hal Jackman Foundation and Slaight Foundation. This year we were also happy to start a new partnership with Canoo, an app that provides newcomers to Canada with free tickets to exciting cultural experiences.
