Circus Smirkus, the acclaimed international youth circus, returns to the outdoor soccer field at the Saratoga Casino Hotel for four performances this summer. On July 9th and 10th families can gather under the “Big Top Tent” as the Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs proudly presents the Circus Smirkus 2018 “Big Top Tour.” Performances are scheduled for 1PM and 6PM each day. Tickets are $25 for adults 13 and older and $19 for children 2-12. Children younger than two are free on an adult’s lap. All proceeds raised will go directly to the Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs. 

This year’s tour continues the tradition of Smirkus theme-based shows with “Vaudeville!” – a celebration of the grand American tradition of variety entertainment!  Attendees are invited to enjoy a spectacular lineup of unforgettable acts, with amazing acrobats, mystifying magicians, jaunty jugglers, and wondrous wirewalkers. Awe, delight, and side-splitting laughter await!  

Circus Smirkus is a non-profit, award winning international youth circus founded with the mission of promoting the skills, culture and traditions of the traveling circus and inspiring youth to engage in life-changing adventures in the circus arts. This is the International youth circus featured on the Disney Channel, the circus that The New York Times called "exuberant" and "joyful." Circus Smirkus is the only American youth circus to put on a full-season tour under its own Big Top, a 24-meter, 750 seat, one ring tent in the European style. Now in its 31st year, the Vermont-based organization has raised over $2.5 million for non-profit partners. 

Tickets for Circus Smirkus will be available starting May 1st by calling 1-877-SMIRKUS toll-free or visiting www.smirkus.org.  Tickets can be purchased locally in Saratoga Springs beginning May 1st at the Children’s Museum at Saratoga on 69 Caroline Street and at G. Willikers at 461 Broadway.
