The ON THE EDGE fringe festival had recently stated that the dates would be August 8th – 11th for the 2017 festival. We have always run the third week of August as this is the time that aligns with local events and allows us to occupy the Capitol Centre right before its holiday closure. In 2016 the festival dates taking place during the third week of August were Aug 9th – 12th but because dates slide around on the calendar each year we didn’t realize that “August 8th – 11th” is actually the second week of August which is in direct conflict with other festivals in our region. This was going to make life impossible for the fringe and for the other festivals as we are a force to be reckoned with. 🙂

The 2017 Festival dates are during the third week of August, which are:

August 15th – 19th!
