A biennial community arts event, the Castlemaine Fringe Festival runs concurrently with the Castlemaine State Festival.
Looking for something a little different? The Castlemaine Fringe Festival will open your eyes to an abundance of new experiences and ways of thinking about the world through various art forms. The Festival runs across ten days, in a range of outdoor and indoor locations around Castlemaine, and includes street performance, theatre performance, visual art, music, poetry, dance, graffiti, and the spoken word.
Not only is the Castlemaine Fringe Festival host to some wonderful alternative art forms, but it is also a great opportunity for the emerging artist offering something outside the mainstream to gain exposure within the broader community.
