Where to Buy Circus Tickets

Prepare to be awed at a night of spectacle when you buy circus tickets at TicketSmarter. While the genre has branched out to encompass a number of different styles of performance. English equestrian Philip Astley is credited as a father of the modern circus, thanks to his creation of a variety show which included acrobats, jugglers, magic shows and a clown, among other performances. Ever since that event took place in the late 1700s, the art of the modern circus has flourished. The circus format that has come to be known as “traditional,” featuring a ringmaster who introduces a number of different choreographed acts, emerged during the 1800s. The circus is a wonderful family-friendly event that has been around a long time that everyone, kid or adult,  would enjoy attending. 

The popularity of circus acts as well as the diversity of what they offer has grown over the years. Just as a traditional-style circus act such as Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey may delight fans across the country, so too will an evening of highly choreographed and precise movement from a Cirque du Soleil troupe. Modern-day circuses may offer anything from old-school tightrope walking and rings of fire to interpretive shows inspired by elements such as air and water. 

Circus Ticket Prices

Circus event tickets will likely vary in price for a number of reasons. City, venue and ticket demand commonly affect the pricing of seats sold at TicketSmarter.

As with many productions in the genre, it may be possible to find circus seats for as low as $30. If you’re searching for discounted circus tickets, you may be best served to look in the back of the venue if possible. For productions that typically offer general admission-only style seating, ticket demand tends to be the primary factor in determining the price. Get your tickets today at TicketSmarter.

Circus Performance Schedule

Though circus show dates may vary, circus-style productions typically tour the nation. Also, productions tend to remain in destination cities for weeks, or even months, making it easier for you to find the time and see the show. Some circus shows will follow local fairs or festivals and include limited engagement shows.

Circus Seating Chart

Venue size and style may change based on a number of factors, including the popularity of the circus and the scope of the performance. Many venues will offer general admission-only seating, while others may seat guests across a number of theatre-style sections. For venues that offer general admission-only seating, be sure to arrive early as seating will be first-come-first-served. For theatre-style venues, front of orchestra seats typically offers the best views of the stage. It may be preferable to get seats in the front of the mezzanine over those in the rear of the orchestra, however, as the mezzanine usually overhangs the orchestra.

While capacities range, two venues that commonly hold circus performances are the Kupferberg Center for the Arts’ Colden Auditorium in Flushing, NY and the UniverSoul Circus tent. Both of these venues can fit between 2,000 and 2,500 guests.
