Your Fringe journey starts at the Virgin Money Fringe Street Events.

Every August, Edinburgh’s historic streets and squares are transformed into huge outdoor street performance arenas. Hundreds of performers mix with thousands of festival goers, creating a vibrant and colourful centrepiece for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

The Virgin Money Fringe Street Events is proudly open access. This means we try to remove as many barriers as possible for performers and audiences. The Fringe does not charge performers a fees to participate and the event is free for the public.
