So Soiree Fringe Garden

Crowd at event with a Parlour sign

City of Stonnington is thrilled to present So Soiree Fringe Garden, featuring eight days of performances across comedy, cabaret and circus, celebrating the local art scene. Presented in partnership with Melbourne Fringe, So Soiree Fringe Garden takes place at the well-travelled intimate pop-up performance venue, The Parlour, located in Greville Street Prahran. Free and ticketed experiences for the roaming revelers, creatures of the night, the art darlings and social butterflies.

Taking inspiration from Adelaide Fringe and Edinburgh Fringe festivals, the stunning outdoor area of Grattan Gardens will serve as a hub for the inaugural So Soiree Festival. The Parlour has travelled across Australia, following appearances at Adelaide Fringe Festival and Perth Fringe World. Audiences can visit the So Soiree Garden before and after performances, grab a drink and soak up the atmosphere.

So Soiree will see Prahran reborn with pop-up performance space The Parlour, complete with neon lights, beer gardens and a spiegeltent. That's set to play host to a diverse program of goodness — from side-splitting theatre-comedy courtesy of emerging.
