Adelaide | World Fringe Congress

Save the date! In 2020, Adelaide Fringe is hosting the World Fringe Congress. The World Fringe Congress was established in 2012, and is the only formal gathering of international Fringe representatives from all around the world. It's a place for the organisers of Fringe festivals from across the globe to share ideas, learn together and forge valuable connections.

2020 will be the first time the biennial Congress will be held in the Southern Hemisphere and it'll also coincide with the hosts - Adelaide Fringe festival's 60th birthday!

World Fringe Congress will run from 14-18 February—that's the first five days of Adelaide Fringe 2020! 

Congress attendees will receive access to: 

  • Keynote presentations
  • Workshops
  • Panel discussions/forums

If you are part of a Fringe Festival from afar and are interested in participating in World Fringe Congress 2020, sign up here to receive our dedicated Congress eNews.
