The 79th Edition features an assortment of human and animal performers, led by the biggest stars of the Circus – The Incredible Carson & Barnes Elephants! Presented in traditional “Big Top” style, America's oldest family-owned Circus brings animals and acrobats, clowns and daredevils, and a little old-time Circus Magic to more than 200 American cities each year.

“Our goal is to keep alive the traditions handed down through our family of bringing quality entertainment and education wherever we go”, says owner Kristin Parra, adding, “The only thing more important to us than our animals and performers are the smiles on the faces of children.”
