The Fringe Festival was held in conjunction with the National Multicultural Festival in 2016 and 2017. Its aims were to:

  • showcase alternative and culturally diverse contemporary arts; and
  • complement the National Multicultural Festival program.

The National Multicultural Festival is a celebration of the ACT’s Multicultural and Indigenous communities. It is a sharing of culturally diverse traditions, dance, food, performances, exhibitions and concerts. It has a long history in the ACT with over 250,000 people attending the festival weekend.

The Fringe Festival was staged within the National Multicultural Festival footprint, with the main venue free and open to the general public, although subsidiary venues/activities could be ticketed.
