Summerside’s primary festival since 1956 celebrates three Island passions: lobster, harness racing, and good entertainment. Enjoy lobster food demonstrations and taste testing with Chef Robert Pendergast, feast on PEI lobster, view the best of standardbred harness racing, take in the music and acts of the entertainment tent, lobster trap stacking and eating competitions, cardboard boat racing, sidewalk sale, parade, and enjoy the thrills of the first class midway.
The Island Fringe Festival is a site-specific summer festival celebrating independent art and alternative theatre and performance in downtown Charlottetown. All Island Fringe shows are admission by donation, with 100% of the donations going directly to the artists.
The 2019 Island Fringe Festival will have 10 shows from different categories: Prince Edward Island, Canada, International, Family-Friendly, Francophone, and Diversity!!
The Fringe will feature top-notch pre and post-festival programming. We are also very excited to be able welcome our Fringe After Dark event series for the night owls.
Specifics about the 2019 Island Fringe Festival will be made available as we get closer to the date.
