Feel like meeting other Fringe fans next month at a special Fringe-related event?
Feel like visiting places in Vancouver where the show is filmed?
Then please consider joining fellow Fringe fans for this once-in-a-lifetime event, The Fringe Event,
which will take place in Vancouver, British Columbia this coming August 10-12, 2012.
Just what is "The Fringe Event"(or TFE as I will call it from now on)?
Here's the description from the official website:
It is a dedicated weekend of Fringe themed activities being organised by fans, for fans. We will be running walking tours of past filming locations, screening Fringe on a cinema screen (WB copyright approval pending), bowling at Sam's bowling alley, taking a trip to Reiden Lake, holding debates on Fringe theory and mythology and more. In the evenings we will be holding mixer events to give us all a chance to relax and talk – after all, many of us will have never had the chance to meet in “real life” before even though we are all quantum-entangled through social media.
The Fringe Event will be taking place from Friday, August 10th (in the evening) through 'til midnight on Sunday, August 12th.
Tickets are still available at $135 per adult and $85 per child(under age 16). Part of the proceeds of the ticket sales go to Oxfam Canada.
The program includes:
- Friday night reception
- downtown walking tour with photo opps of:"The Bishop House, FauxLivia's apartment building, Markham's book store, The Alt!Verse Fringe Division HQ and many more locations)"
