The Magic Crystal Spiegeltent

Last year’s newest venue, the Spiegeltent, will rise again in all of its wondrous splendor at One Fringe Place.  Originally constructed in Belgium around the turn of the 20th century, there are only a handful of Spiegeltents, or “Magic Mirror tents,” left in all the world – and we’ve got one! Equipped with a hardwood floor, an antique bar and beautiful wooden booths flanked by mirrors and stained glass, our giant Magic Crystal Spiegeltent also features an outdoor beer and wine lounge called the Spiegelgarden. It’s a magical experience!

Last year, the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival was the first fringe festival in North America to host a Spiegeltent. After the first captivating performance, tickets for all shows and events were sold out!

Entry to the Spiegeltent is via ticket only.  To enter, please purchase a ticket to Jay Pharoah, MARDI GRAS! by Cirque du Fringe, 20 Penny Circus, Silent Disco, or Brown Bag Disco.

The Magic Crystal is wheelchair accessible.

Reserve a booth

Shows in the Spiegeltent are performed in the round, so everyone has a good seat!  Why not bring friends and reserve a VIP booth?  Comfortable, velvet-cushioned booths seat 6 and come with bar service and exclusive VIP entry into the Spiegeltent.  This seating is very popular and sells out quickly!

The Spiegeltent Can Be Yours!

The Spiegeltent is such a magical venue, that everyone wants to check it out! Contact us at if you are interested in holding an event in this most unique venue!

The Spiegeltent’s return to Rochester has been made possible due to a generous grant from the Elaine P. and Richard U. Wilson Foundation. The Magic Crystal is owned by Spiegeltent Productions LLC and Mirror Palace BCBA.


Our Spiegelgarden, adjacent to the Magic Crystal Spiegeltent, is a festive, inviting outdoor beer and wine lounge with a magical, European vibe. Designed and landscaped by Broccolo Tree & Lawncare, the Spiegelgarden also features lounge furniture from McCarthy Tents & Events and art and design by Scott Grove.
