 Welcome to the 2015 Broken Hill Fringe Festival, in the nation’s first Heritage City…

Our many thanks go out to all our sponsors who have helped to make this event possible.

Our goal for the Fringe Festival is to build an event for Broken Hill that will bring significant economic and social benefits to our community each year.

The Broken Hill Fringe Festival aims to do this by not only showcasing our region but also our many outstanding local inspiring artists and all they have to offer.

This event would also not have been possible without the tireless work of the volunteers on the Fringe Committee, and lastly and most importantly, the work of our local artists.

Thank you to everyone and we hope to see you there!

We would like to show our respect and acknowledge the Wilykail people of the Paakantji/Barkindji Nations, Traditional Custodians of the Land on which these events take place… and the Elders past and present.
