Trapeze artists, acrobats, and yes, clowns abound at a one-of-a-kind event that could only happen in Indiana. The circus festival in Peru is happening this July, and you’re not going to want to miss it.
Kids of all ages love this once-a-year event. Check it out:
Mark your calendars for July 13-20, 2019 for the Peru Circus City Festival. This annual event has been going on for as long as locals can remember, and it draws out hundreds of Hoosiers and out-of-staters each year.
The circus features a parade, circus performances, live bands, a museum, and competitions. There is still time to sign up if you wish to be part of the event.
Every year, about 200 people between the ages of 7 and 21 put on 10 performances during this eight-day fest. Some of them have gone on to perform in professional acts like Ringling Bros. and Shrine Circuses.
Peru is known as the Circus Capital of the World, in part due to this festival, and in part due to it being home to the International Circus Hall of Fame. This marvelous museum is open during the event.
In addition to the circus, there will also be a carnival with rides and food. Get all your junk food favorites at this circus festival.
In addition to the parade, which is set to take place on the concluding Saturday of the event, there will also be a Miss Circus City pageant with three categories in which girls can compete.
Enjoy a circus with clowns, acrobats, theatrics, and all the smoke and mirrors you've come to expect from a real live show. This impressive week-long festival will change everything you think about the circus.
Hours for the festival vary by day. To get more details, check out the Peru Circus City Festival’s
