Edmonton International Fringe Festival: Edmonton, Canada
The oldest and largest fringe festival in North America (and second largest in the world), the Edmonton International Fringe Festival welcomed over 800 performers in 2014. Unlike some other fringe festivals where artists are responsible for finding and running their own venues, the Edmonton Fringe sets itself apart by accomodating its participants, providing them everything from a venue to technicians.
