Fifth World Circus Day

Opening Message from H.S.H. Princess Stephanie

Celebrated on the third Saturday each April, World Circus Day is a special day to celebrate Circus Arts and Culture.

A month long celebration of Circus, the Art of Happiness, will begin on 20 March 2014, the United Nation's "International Day of Happiness" and end on the Fifth World Circus Day, Saturday 19 April 2014.

Anyone wishing to participate in World Circus Day must register online. Registered participants will be able to upload images of their events starting 21 March.

Look for the new WCD logos in our Toolkit.

All participants are asked to build a pyramid as part of their World Circus Day activities and submit it online the day of the event to create a Virtual Pyramid of Happiness linking events around the world.
