We weren’t sure what to expect, but we were delighted! I usually don’t like circuses because of the potential cruelty to animals, but in this case, the acts were all about agility, and beauty and showmanship. It involved horses and and cats! A...continued

Always surprising. Amazing acrobats, some trained horses and rescue dogs, with a grand finale of trapeze artists. Just two 45 minute sets and intermission, so young kids don't get bored. Our seats were in mezzanine but center. I think that's...continued

Wow! What a fun night! All the acts were top notch. A good old-fashioned type circus under a tent with all the glitz and glamour of a full band, a decked out ringleader, a few animal acts (dogs who were very happy and energetic and some horses...continued

We went twice before and this was the first for my little one. It was definitely better and I am glad since I have seen it so many times. Better acts and pony ride (extra $10) during intermission and after the show was something that the kids...continued

The best circus for kids especially the younger ones because it is one ring and intimate and I ah e been to many but this year they added a feature where you can take photos with the circus actors after the show which was a plus. We got great...continued

The circus was wonderful. It is family friendly, funny, amazing. My 3 year old granddaughter was entranced and so were her parents and grandma! Seating allowed for perfect views of amazing acts. There were none of the somewhat creepy features...continued

The circus was fantastic. But the parking situation was a fiasco. Beyond National Harbor's rip off parking prices, none the the ticket machines in nearby lots or garages were working. Traffic was backed up for blocks. Both entering and exiting was...continued

Some of the acts were not perfect. Aerial acts were excellent. Not enough costumed clowns for kids. Live Band was very good. Location and set up was convenient. Parking expensive for families.

My nephew loved everything about the circus!! He couldn’t stop talking about it. That’s a lot when your talking about an 11 year old boy who’s usually sitting playing video games. Thank you so much for putting on a show that is so much like what I...continued

The overall show was good but the seats we were assigned was close to a beam that was obstructing part of our view. Since the tickets were will call pick up I wasn't able to verify my specific seat location prior to the show.

Pretty good show for what we got to see. Got there 15 minutes before Show was supposed to start. Huge security line that took 45 minutes to get through. Only 2 metal detectors for all the people to go through. Not well planned. Get there an hour...continued

First the good part: Kids LOVED it. It's amazing for little kids, and still quite a good show. But Big Apple Circus used to blow your mind with acrobatics, trapeze, dare-devil stunts of wonder. It was a spectacle. This is an extremely pared-down...continued

This is a great event for children. The 4 p.m. show I attended was exactly two hours long and it was enjoyable!
