World Circus Day

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

The Sixth World Circus Day will be held on Saturday 18 April 2015. Anyone wishing to participate in World Circus Day must register online. We will publish details of how to register nearer the time.

The Fifth World Circus Day took place on Saturday 19 April 2014. The day was the culmination of a month-long celebration of Circus, the Art of Happiness, which began on 20 March, the United Nation's "International Day of Happiness".

Participants were asked to build a pyramid as part of their World Circus Day activities and submit it online to create a Virtual Pyramid of Happiness linking events around the world. Visit our World Circus Day Archive to explore the diverse and colourful events held to celebrate Circus in 2014 and in previous years.
