The Auckland Fringe Festival is back for yet another year in 2022 with its first ever spring festival! 

The dynamic and inclusive programme includes 70 performances that push the boundaries of theatre, comedy, music, dance, circus, exhibitions, and so much more! 

For the first time, the festival will happen on its new dates of 30 August - 17 September, perfect timing to launch Tāmaki Makaurau right into spring. 

Wacky, weird, silly and tantalising - audiences are asked to open their minds to all of the out of the box works this festival has to offer. Between theatre, comedy, dance, poetry, cabaret, circus, or what falls in the fringes there will be something to shock, awe and enjoy for all walks of life. 

“The Auckland Fringe whānau are ecstatic to unveil our first ever spring festival! The team are fully aware that the impacts of Covid are still lingering for artists AND audiences. We’ve been working closely with our artists and partners to build a new platform that helps break down potential anxieties, uplift experimental artistry, and mark the 2022 Fringe experience as a time to celebrate our collective tenacity whilst embracing the chaos that is a Fringe Festival.” - Borni Te Rongopai Tukiwaho, Director of Auckland Fringe.
