This was a wonderful event. We were in the front row and felt like part of the action. My children, ages 4 and 7 both really loved it. Every act was great. Thanks for making it affordable. I would recommend it highly.

Wholesome family entertainment! Kids of all ages -- including adults -- will enjoy. The only negative was that our seats were off to the side and slightly obstructed. But a good time was had by all!

“First-rate entertainment! Cheers, whistles and applause along with a healthy helping of laughter in the intimate setting that is the Big Apple’s trademark.” —New York Times


About the Big Apple Circus:

It’s 30 years since the folks behind Big Apple created one of the most eagerly anticipated family traditions: The Big Apple Circus. They put the circus under a big top tent and gave their world-class artists the theatrical focus of one ring. The Big Apple Circus puts their audience right in the middle of the action—no one sits more than 50 feet from ringside, so even if you’re very small, you won’t miss a thing!

This all new 30th Anniversary show, Celebrate!, features comedy acrobats on the ground and thrilling acrobats in the air; high prancing horses and old dogs with incredible new tricks, soaring ballerinas, acts of renown and, of course, Grandma the Clown.

So, juggle that schedule and bring the whole group to see the Big Apple Circus. The show is new but one thing stays the same: The Big Apple Circus is your circus. Big Apple is back in town!
