Summer Arts Fest 2024

About the event



Returning once again - Theatre Orangeville's Summer Arts Fest is growing and we couldn't be more excited to share this years' lineup with you! Our annual summertime event will once again be held at the beautiful Mount Alverno Luxury Resorts. Join us from August 16th through 18th for some fantastic programming that celebrates arts, culture and all things theatre (and beyond)!

Of course it wouldn't be Summer Arts Fest if we didn't bring back some of your favourites - alongside some exciting new activities and a simplified KidsFEST ticketing structure - This weekend-long festival has become a Dufferin County favourite!

We really think attending Theatre Orangeville's Summer Arts Fest needs to be on your radar this August - Read on and we're sure you'll agree!

Here's a rundown of what you can expect...

Friday August 16th, 2024

North(519) Best of Fringe - RETURNS!

EVENING - Ticketed Event


Our Friday night opening event at Summer Arts Fest will feature not one, but TWO shows from The Toronto Fringe Festival. Held inside the intimate barn at Mount Alverno, you're welcomed with LIVE patio music, drinks and ambiance, before taking in your first show of the evening. We encourage you to take advantage of our two-show ticket deal and see BOTH Fringe shows for one low price.

In between the shows, we'll once again greet you on the romantically lit patio for music and refreshments.

WHAT SHOWS WILL I BE SEEING? (That's a great question - we don't know yet!)

Every year in July our team spends a VERY BUSY WEEK viewing dozens of Toronto Fringe Festival shows. Once they have concluded this daunting dash back and forth across the city in search of the very best shows the festival has to offer - we will select TWO SHOWS to bring to our Summer Arts Fest for you to see!

Once we announce the shows - tickets usually sell pretty fast (and we mean, FAST!) So this year we're offering a VIP Early Bird package (must book by July 11th) that will get you a SWAG bag and access to the VIP Preferred Seating Section at the show. You can purchase tickets for either show (But we suggest buying for both NOW and take advantage of the discounted ticket rate for Fringe A + Fringe B)

One of the best parts of buying now?? We never quite know what the shows will be until our ‘Fringe Binge’ - this is theatre-loving at it's finest!

Tickets on sale NOW!!
