Wynnum Fringe

Community Event

19 Dec 2024 to 29 Dec 2024 Annual Event

Wynnum Fringe is an award winning 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. 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.

The audience has grown rapidly in three years. Since the inaugural event in 2020 the festival has seen a 300 percent increase in ticket sales each year. With attendees from across Australia, the event has generated over AUD2.5 million of direct benefit to the local economy, provided arts experiences to over 70,000 attendees and employed over 1,000 arts workers. In March 2022 Wynnum Fringe won the most prestigious award in the Queensland Industry, the Gold Matilda for outstanding contributions to the Arts and Entertainment industry. Crazy? Yep! It’s been a whirlwind to say the least. It wouldn’t be possible without all of the support.
