Support the Fringe

As a non-profit Festival we rely on the support of a wide range of people and organisations to bring the Festival to life. If you would like to offer your support to the Festival there are a number of ways that you can be involved.


Volunteers are essential members of the Festival team. We recruit and manage a team of over 50 volunteers who perform a range of roles prior to and during the Festival. Tasks can include venue staffing, ticketing, administration and coordinating promotional activities. If you’re interested in volunteering for our 2015 festival, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@dunedinfringe.nz.


Many local and national businesses support the Festival in a variety of ways. Sponsoring the Festival is a great way to be actively involved with our events, artists and audiences. The Festival produces a number of special events that provide opportunities for businesses and other organisations to participate in the Festival.

Sponsorship involves developing a partnership where both the Festival and the sponsor work together to make a special event happen. Festival staff will deliver a range of benefits to our sponsors in return for their financial support or donated services.

For more information on sponsorship please contact the Festival director.


Anyone can advertise on our website all year round. The website offers desktop skyscraper and mobile responsive advertisements which provide a strong profile for your message.

You can also advertise in our printed Festival brochure. Called the Festival Guide, this stylish publication is an essential tool for all audience members to access the Festival programme. The Guide is a full colour A4 magazine style publication with 8,000 copies printed. Advertising can be booked from September to December the year prior to the festival. The Guide is printed in mid February, launched at a special event and then widely distributed throughout Dunedin and selected outlets nationwide.

For advertising rates and more information please contact the Festival office.


The Fringe Festival is produced by the Dunedin Fringe Arts Trust, a charitable trust registered with the Charities Commission. We accept donations from individuals or organisations. Please contact Festival staff if you would like to discuss making a donation.
