CANADIAN ASSOCIATION OF FRINGE FESTIVALS

CAFF is a member-driven, volunteer-run arts services organization that provides assistance, guidance, and support to its member Festivals. The volunteers are comprised of a mix of newly minted and seasoned Fringe Festival Directors and Producers, along with a network of team staff members of varying levels and experiences. We openly and willingly share documents, resources, and Festival operational knowledge with one another that serve to bolster and strengthen each of our Festivals, which in turn contributes to a stronger and healthier Fringe ecosystem. Collectively, CAFF member Festivals work together in concert to bring about positive institutional change within our individual member Festivals, our society, and the world in general.

The United States Association of Fringe Festivals (USAFF) was formed to bring the nations' festivals together to share ideas and best practices in order to grow the art of Fringe. USAFF generally defines fringe festivals as those that are focused on performing arts, uncensored, easy to participate in, multiple days, original, and rapid-fire!
