Toronto’s Fringe Theatre Festival happens at various theatres, on various stages at all hours of the day and night. It’s a breeding town for future Toronto hit plays. There’s also a huge free outdoor party space. Unleash your inner artist at the brand new Fringe Club at Scadding Court (707 Dundas W)! With over 50 free events and happenings, plus local food vendors and a late-night beer garden, the Fringe Club is Toronto’s best outdoor patio.
