Everyone’s favorite pop-up urban lounge returns.
Welcome to the Spiegelgarden.
Come before, between, or after shows, or just to soak in the festive, inviting, and laid-back atmosphere. Adjacent to the Spiegeltent, the Spiegelgarden is the #1 place to find rest, relaxation, and food during the Fringe. A gorgeous, green haven in the middle of downtown, this temporary garden features urban landscaping, eclectic lounge furniture, outdoor art, and even a firepit. An ever-changing array of food trucks appear every night. The Spiegelgarden also hosts site-specific shows, pop-up performances, TriviaCity and Pedestrian Drive-In.
The Spiegelgarden is located within ONE FRINGE PLACE, across from the Eastman Theatre, at the corner of Main & Gibbs Streets, Rochester, NY 14604. The Fringe Box Office & Info Booth, Merchandise Tent, and Spiegeltent can be found here.

The Green Room
In 2016, a new lounge bloomed inside the Spiegelgarden. Welcome to the Green Room — created entirely out of recycled materials by the Rochester Mini Maker Faire from more than 4,000 milk and water jugs. Inside this unique space, pallet furniture shines under a spectacular chandelier made out of olive bar containers. Grab a drink at the Green Room Bar and marvel at the recycled décor designed, created and donated by the best community. Thank you, Rochester! Stay tuned for more surprises in 2017.
