2021 Tauranga Fringe Festival

Brought to you by the Incubator Creative Hub.

A manifestation of creativity!


Tauranga Fringe is a one day  extravaganza festival.
We welcome all artists and all art forms - especially those outside the mainstream. A celebration of inclusivity, otherness and artistic adventure, Fringe is about handing the microphone to our artistic community and creating a platform for our arts sector to connect with audience and spectators.
This festival is open access to performers to be part of .

Only a tenner gate charge for audience for a whole day of events, music and markets .

The vision for this year’s Tauranga Fringe is a one-day spectacular, full of strange creativity, alternative art practices, the bizarre, the beautiful, the disruptive, the extreme and the provocative, and above all stimulating sensationalism.


Tauranga Fringe  is the perfect place to take a risk in a safe environment, try something new, explore that new idea that has been brewing, take the artistic leap into the unknown and share your ideas with a hungry and fearless audience.
