#fringemtl is coming.

I have to admit - I constantly have #fringemtl on my mind. FRINGE is my favourite time year. I can never seem to get enough of it. I think it's because I firmly believe in the festival's values of diversity, community and accessibility (and also the partying, the shinadigans and the art!). Whatever the case may be, come get your FRINGE on early at The Balding this week in the MiniMain.

You are in for a musical treat at whichever show you choose to see at MainLine this week...

Through the years, we have met many talented artists and producers who've come back to play important roles in the MainLine community, thanks to the Gala (ex: Trevor Barrette from To Be: In Concert).
