The Circus is Coming to Town Memorial Day Weekend

American Crown Circus as St. Vincent's

It's not every day that the circus comes to town, but it'll be here in Marin this Memorial Day weekend! American Crown Circus sets up its big top on the grounds of St. Vincent's School for Boys in Marinwood, just south of Novato, May 25–29. American Crown Circus is a family run, bilingual circus that features acrobats, high wire acts, and clowns (but no exotic animals). Read about our visit to the circus here.

The circus is the major fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Novato Sunrise, which has brought a professional traveling tent circus to Marin every year since 1997. Profits from the circus support local community projects.

There will be 10 performances and all, with shows on Thursday, May 25 and Friday, May 26 at 6:30 pm; Saturday and Sunday, May 27 and 28 at 1:30, 4, and 6:30 pm each day; and on Monday, May 29 at 1:30 and 4 pm. Advance adult tickets cost $15 each and are available through May 24; each paid adult advance ticket admits two children under 12 free of charge. Child admission coupons are available at schools and from Rotarians at the parking entrance. Parking costs $5 per vehicle.

St. Vincent's is located off Highway 101 at the St. Vincent's/Marinwood exit. For more information, call (415) 883-0800. You can learn more about American Crown Circus by visiting their website.
