About Northern Fringe Festival

In July 2019, Townsville presented the inaugural Northern Fringe Festival which ran alongside the North Australian Festival of Arts (NAFA).

NAFA provided the overarching branding and marketing umbrella to these new and exciting events and presented a line-up of local, national and international acts complimented by a month-long curated arts and cultural program.

The Northern Fringe Festival – in spirit of Fringe Festivals across the globe - is an inclusive and organic and open access festival featuring all forms of art and performance. It is envisioned that the Northern Fringe Festival will become a welcomed addition to the Australian Fringe Festival scene.

The Northern Fringe Festival will return from 2 July to 2 August 2020 as part of NAFA.
