After a successful run in Denver and Longmont this spring, the popular attraction returns to Colorado! The circus is comin’ to town! If you’re looking for an escape from your own “three-ring circus” at home, Venardos Circus is the perfect answer for family fun at a reasonable price. Built “from the ground up on dreams, sparkles, shoelaces and duct tape”, the big top show is the future of the American circus…with the heart of a Broadway show.
Also known as “the little circus that could”, Venardos Circus held its first performance at the Los Angeles County Fair in 2014.
Created by former Ringling Bros. Ringmaster Kevin Venardos, the show originally featured a cast of just six artists in a cross between a Broadway musical and circus. It was just a little circus, but it had big dreams.
In the years since, Venardos Circus has grown into a living example of the power of dreams by reinventing the American Circus tradition for a new generation and bringing joy to everyone who sees the show. And now it’s bringing its whimsical, fun and family-friendly cavalcade to Denver.
And, don’t worry, the show features no animals, but all amazing human talent, including acrobats, contortionists, comedians and more. It’s a Broadway-style circus, perfect for the whole family.
Audience members can expect to be transported back in time to the center ring of a centuries-old tradition, but one that has been reinvented for the next generation.
With an amazing assortment of aerialists, acrobats, juggling, balancing, comedy, daredevilry, magic, musical productions and so much more, the Circus offers a magical and wondrous experience sure to delight the whole family.
Even better, the ticket prices are extremely reasonable compared to other concerts and shows in town.
Venardos Circus proudly features its very own custom-made big-top — a classic red-and-white striped tent, with an intimate feel. The tent is 90′ by 60′ and seats 350 people comfortably.
It is waterproof, designed to withstand 90 MPH winds and provides a safe performance space that can be cooled or heated — depending on the weather outside.
