“We felt the need to create a project where everyone could participate and showcase their artistic work, and there’s no better way than joining the international network of over 250 festivals that are part of the World Fringe,”said Terry Costa, president of MiratecArts, the organization in charge of the festival.
So, from June 19 – 30 in Madalena, Pico Island, June 21, 22, 28 and 29 in Faial and June 22 in S. Miguel you can see art on the Fringe. You can check the complete program here.

With more than 120 confirmed artists, 80 events, artists from 8 countries and from all Azorean islands, it will have a sailboat with unknown stops in different islands and many surprises.
The Edinburgh International Festival, a showcase in Scotland that began in 1947, is the World Fringe’s inspiration, besides the uniqueness of each festival. World Fringe is the part of World Festival Network, which specializes in Fringe Festivals around the globe. It is set up to serve the global Fringe community, including festival staff, venues, performers & artists, agents, audiences, suppliers, media, sponsors & supporters, and wider industry professionals.
