What happens in the Spiegeltent stays in the Spiegeltent.

What happens in the Spiegeltent stays in the Spiegeltent.

Since 2013, Rochester has swooned over the elegant beauty of our jewel box of a venue: the Spiegeltent. Originally created as traveling dance halls in the early 1900’s, only a few of these magical “Mirror Tents” exist in the world today. The Spiegeltent makes a breathtaking return to the Flower City for rocfringe#17. This very special and beloved piece of history boasts stained glass windows, magical faceted mirrors, a velvet-draped ceiling and private booths fit for royalty. For 10 days, the Spiegeltent lives in Rochester as an indelible and scintillating part of the Fringe, attracting the young and the forever-young.
