Fringe for Free! Toronto Fringe Ticket Giveaways for Shows on Thursday, June 30

Fringe For Free Graphic Day two of our ticket contests! Woo hoo! What’s better than great theatre? Great free theatre!

Well we’re here to help you with that. We’re giving away a pair of tickets to five shows a day, and you can enter for each show, each day.

That means, in theory, if you were the luckiest person in the world, you could see a million shows for free! (math isn’t my strong suit, my degree is in theatre…)

Plus, check us out for reviews of every show in the festival as well as general buzz and features about other aspects. For the next couple weeks it’s all Fringe all the time around here.

Now, back to those free tickets, check out after the break for what shows are on offer today for Thursday July 30th and how to enter.
