Brought to you by the Incubator Creative Hub - A manifestation of creativity!

The 2024 Tauranga Fringe Festival is the ultimate one-day extravaganza!


A celebration of 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.  Get ready for a quirky mix of artsy wonders, mind-bending creativity, and a whole lot of funky fun. Stroll through market stalls, grab some grub from The Little Big Markets, and dive into the village buzz with music, street acts, poetry, games, donkey rides, fashion galore, or refresh in 

the Garden of Earthly Delights Beer. All of this for ONLY A TENNER FOR THE WHOLE DAY!

Kids under 14 free

The vision for the 2024 Tauranga Fringe Festival was a one-day spectacular, full of strange creativity, alternative art practices, the bizarre, the beautiful, the risqué, the provocative, and above all stimulating sensationalism.
