MOUNT Gambier City Council has committed $30,000 to bring the Adelaide Fringe Festival to the Blue Lake city in February and March next year.

Elected members have moved to boost the festival's longevity, discussing the possibility of entering a longer term funding arrangement.

Council joins the South Australian Tourism Commission, Adelaide Fringe and Country Arts SA as the major funding bodies driving the initiative, which will start on February 24 and culminate on March 24 and 25 with a large outdoor event.
