Wexford Fringe Festival is an annual open-access arts festival which will run in parallel to Wexford Opera Festival from Friday, 18th October to Sunday, 3rd November 2013 as part of the Gathering. 

Now in its 61st year, Wexford Fringe offers an eclectic mix of over 300 events over 17 days including cabaret, comedy, circus, dance, film, theatre, puppetry, music, and visual art, many of which are free to attend.
We are delighted to announce Celtic Link Ferries as sponsors of the 2013 Wexford Fringe Festival Guide. Celtic Link Ferries are a 100% Wexford owned low-fares ferry company sailing between Rosslare and Cherbourg, France. Its vessel, Celtic Horizon is the newest and fastest vessel sailing on the route and the only ferry company that will sail ALL YEAR ROUND in 2013. With three return sailings each week there is no easier or more cost-effective way of sailing to France – check out the great deals for yourself at www.celticlinkferries.com

Unlike a curated festival, the open-access nature of Wexford Fringe means that anyone with a show, exhibition or cultural event is able to register and be part of one of Ireland’s largest Fringe Events. The result is one of the most diverse fringe festivals in Ireland, renowned for fresh ideas, spontaneity and fun.
Each year Wexford Chamber takes responsibility for the coordination and compilation of the Wexford Fringe Festival Guide of which 10,000 copies are printed annually. The guide is distributed throughout the South East and to overseas Fáilte Ireland offices and awareness is driven nationally through public relations with key relevant media.

During the festival, an estimated 50,000 visitors from Ireland and overseas visit Wexford each October to experience first-hand one of the most enduring and well established opera and fringe festivals. Reaching a wide audience the Fringe Festival Guide provides essential information on events, ticket info, festival tours, historical attractions and much more.
