My family LOVED the Big Apple Circus this year, as we do every year. My husband and I enjoy it as much, if not more, than our children do!

Phenomenal acrobatic event! It was the first circus for my 4 yr old, and for his 75 yr old grandmother and both were blown away! Bello is so talented that he makes it look effortless and fun. I will go back time and time again!

This was great, I absolutely loved Bello with his high top hair, he truly is a jack of all performances.
I took my mom to see it and she had a blast. "Grandma" clown was also very entertaining, great acrobats too.

More Information



It seems like only yesterday that this daredevil clown made his hair-raising New York debut with the Big Apple Circus. He’s been a big star all over the world ever since and was recently named “America’s Best Clown” by Time Magazine.

Bello is joined by a world of stellar circus stars including Spain’s juggling artiste, Picasso Jr. and Russia’s Aniskin Troupe who catapult to the top of the tent on trampoline and soar across it on trapeze. And for an extra measure of love and laughter, there’s our very own clown — Grandma. So pick your group’s dates and do like Bello—come on back! The Big Apple Circus is your circus, Big Apple is back in town!

About the Ticket Supplier: Big Apple Circus

As a leading presenter of family entertainment and a not-for-profit performing arts institution, our nationwide performances and community programs have made our 34-year history far-reaching and full.

It all began in Kent, England, in 1974, when American entertainers and Big Apple Circus co-founders Paul Binder and Michael Christensen became juggling partners and took to the street corners of Europe. Their comedic juggling act was a hit, and they soon found themselves on the stage of the presitigous Nouveau Cirque de Paris. They returned home to America in 1976 with a vision: to entertain and improve the lives of millions. One year later, they found a site for the first tent-raising in Battery Park, New York, and went on to create the award-winning, not-for-profit Big Apple Circus.
