With thanks & gratitude to the wonderful supporters & sponsors of Blue Fringe 

The festival would not have been possible without the support of many generous local people and businesses over the years.  The Blue Mountains City Council has also been a long time supporter of the Festival and recognises the important cultural role the event plays in our community and in generating positive conversations around mental health.
