Hamilton Fringe

Now in its 18th season, the Hamilton Fringe creates a platform for independent, emerging, and established theatre artists in Hamilton.

Festival Kick Off!

Streaming LIVE online this year, the Fringe gives each company the chance to pitch their show to you (the audience) in only 90 seconds!

Join us as we stream live from Bridgeworks Event Space on Wednesday, July 14 at 7:30pm.

Always a fun and raucous night, the Kick Off is the one event where artists across the festival take the same stage and put it all on the line to sell you their show. Keep your program handy, grab a pen, and plan your Fringe!

The band Nezqwik plays a live show at the Corktown Pub in Hamilton. From left to right, Aleef Mehdi plays guitar, Jeremy Hucal plays keyboard, Ben Duff plays bass, and Jinu Isac plays drums.

Nezqwik: Groove. Pocket. Colour.

Then dance the night away as Nezqwik takes over the stage! Nezqwik is a contemporary quartet based out of Toronto and Hamilton made up of Aleef Mehdi (guitar), Ben Duff (bass), Jeremy Hucal (keys), and Jinu Isac (drums). Inspired by an array of genres ranging from hip-hop to jazz fusion, they weave together intricate textures to create something unique and accessible. Experience first-hand why the band’s philosophy can best be described in just three short words; Groove. Pocket. Colour.

See you there! (Well, you’ll see us there. You’ll be watching online. Why not send us some vibes over social media and tag #HffKickOff?)

PLUS grab a cold beer courtesy of Collective Arts ($5 tall can with your Digital Backer ‘Button’) at the outdoor Fringe Club Patio, located just in front of Bridgeworks Event Space (125 Barton St. W., South Building) while enjoying the musical stylings of Nezqwik at our Kick Off Party!

Tickets are $10 in advance. 50% of ticket sales will be donated to a charity decided by Fringe audiences. Check out our social media feeds for updates and to help us decide!
