Wynnum Fringe is a bright new spark on Queensland’s cultural calendar, an annual event of statewide and national note, contributing to the breadth and accessibility of cultural practice beyond the limits of Brisbane’s CBD.

Something for everyone

The festival celebrates non-mainstream arts, entertainment and cultural experiences taking place in the bayside suburban precinct of Wynnum. It creates venues from under-used public and private spaces, brings in purpose-built portable venues, creates an uplifting carnival atmosphere with street design, lighting, food trucks and activations and presents a program of both ticketed and free arts and cultural events that appeal to a wide range of audiences, ages and backgrounds.

We’re Growing!

Wynnum Fringe has developed audiences rapidly over the last two years. In 2021, Wynnum Fringe presented over 65 groups to present over 100 individual productions, to over 25,000 attendees. In 2022 the festival will expand to present across 3 weeks, with the addition of a festival hub, which includes the Raine & Horne Wynnum Spiegeltent and circus space The Vault, outdoor and immersive activations and more.


We will present legendary headline acts, wacky sideshows and free activations. As Brisbane’s only annual Fringe festival, we want our event to be accessible to everyone.

In addition to yana marumba (Good Walk) – our opening ceremony – Wynnum Fringe presents a number of free, outdoor, and community engagement programs throughout the Festival.

This November, Wynnum takes centre stage and offers the local community, and the greater Brisbane region, a quality arts festival experience for the whole family to enjoy.

After the last few years, don’t you want to have some fun?
