Lotto lights up Fringe World

Hands up if you’ve sat in the Pleasure Garden on a balmy summer night, surrounded by a buzzing atmosphere - smells wafting from food trucks, fairy lights twinkling above and roaming performers gliding past, and thought “why can’t this last all summer, or all year?”

Each summer, Perth is submersed in the weird, wacky and funny and plenty of ‘I’ll cover my eyes…but still peek through my fingers’ moments. There’s nothing quite like it.

Since establishment in 2011, FRINGE WORLD has skyrocketed Perth to the world stage, becoming the third largest Fringe Festival in the world (in terms of attendance) and our State’s most attended event.

The FRINGE WORLD 2018 Impact Report indicated that a huge range of people engage with the annual event, including a mainstream audience who don't often attend arts or cultural events. And that in a nutshell is what is so special about FRINGE WORLD and why Lotterywest has supported the event since it began, providing $7.7 million in grants.

Community events that connect West Aussies to art and culture to share unforgettable experiences are what make our State a great place to live.

And we have to say a big top sized ‘Thank You’ to the people who play our games and our Lotterywest stores which sell them. It’s only thanks to you that we can support FRINGE WORLD with our Lotterywest grants.
