What happens in the Spiegeltent stays in the Spiegeltent.

Rochester has swooned over our jewel box of a venue from Belgium: the Spiegeltent. Originally created as traveling dance halls in the early 1900s, only a handful of these magical “Mirror Tents” exist in the world today. 

This beloved piece of history boasts stained glass windows, magical faceted mirrors, a velvet draped ceiling, VIP booths fit for royalty, and a truly spectacular vintage bar. For 12 days, the Palais im Park Spiegeltent will live in Rochester as an indelible and scintillating part of the Fringe, attracting the young and the forever-young.
