BYOV agreements are negotiated between the applicant company and the proposed venue and are subject to approval by the Hamilton Fringe.

BYOVs come with substantial financial risk to the producing company and can involve a considerable amount of additional work.

All BYOV applicants are encouraged to contact the Hamilton Fringe to discuss their proposal in advance of submitting: info@hamiltonfringe.ca
