The Adelaide Fringe will return to Murray Bridge in 2020 - and it will be bigger and better.

Wildly popular open-air performance Fringe on Sixth will be back on Sixth Street, showcasing street theatre and musical acts over four hours on Saturday, February 29.

But this time it will be just the start.

Producer Connor Jolly, originally from Murray Bridge, will present a three-day program of cabaret, comedy, music, magic, circus acts and children's entertainment at Murray Bridge Town Hall over the same weekend.

Free shows are also being planned at nearby youth centre The Station, on the Friday night, and Murray Bridge Library, on the Sunday.

Local performers are being encouraged to register their interest in filling spots at the street party and one slot in the town hall program.

Mr Jolly said he hoped the diverse collection of acts, to be announced, would give local audiences a taste of the Fringe.

"There should be something for everyone," he said.

"The aim behind the venue and Fringe program is to inspire the local community to get behind the Fringe and see the potential for the arts in Murray Bridge going forward."
