For almost 60 years the Wexford Fringe Festival, has run concurrently with Wexford Festival Opera, with a huge range of events aimed at both those who are in the town for the opera and those who have no interest in opera at all.
Events range from drama productions, historical tours, classical recitals, jazz, musicals and light opera to antique and second hand book fairs, and takes in sporting events like the Open Festival Golf Cup and Wexford Races, as well as a huge number of art and photography exhibitions.
Always popular is the Singing & Swinging Pubs contest, where the towns many pubs and bars complete to provide the best entertainment, which means that practically every bar in town has nightly entertainment from local singers, musicians and comedians…and occasionally even a visiting opera singer!
