Ticketed attendance through the first weekend of the Winnipeg Fringe Festival is better than last year’s record pace.
After five days, 39,325 people have seen indoor shows as compared to 39,079 over the same period in 2012, festival organizers reported today.
The main reason was the huge turnout Saturday, when tickets sales were 10,205, the first time the 10,000-ticket barrier has been surpassed. Sunday’s attendance was 9,103.
There have been 59 sellouts so far and 300 people take the free Fringe Flyer shuttle bus every night, organizers said.
