Vaccination Certificate Checks Update:

As of September 6th, new government guidelines for events require vaccination certificate checks at point of entry.

To access all performances at Dublin Fringe Festival, you must show proof that you are fully vaccinated, or have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 6 months. Each patron’s information will be checked by venue staff on arrival at your event. Young people under 18 accompanying adults do not need to show proof of vaccination or immunity. You may be asked to show photo ID at some venues.

If you purchased a ticket before the change in government guidelines in August, and can no longer attend due to the new vaccination certificate requirement for events, you will be eligible for a refund. In this case, please email tickets@fringefest.com before September 11th to process your refund.
