It’s the largest annual event in WA and the third largest Fringe in the world. The 2021 FRINGE WORLD Festival will run for 31 days from 15 January - 14 February.

The program of events is all about variety and offering something for absolutely everyone. The line-up includes comedy, circus, free and family entertainment, theatre, visual arts, musicals, dance and cabaret presented by Western Australian artists along with performers from all over the world.
