World Circus Day

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

The Sixth World Circus Day was held on Saturday 18 April 2015 with the theme:

"Celebrate with a Circus Selfie"

We invited circus fans to:

1. Visit a circus and make a Selfie.

2. Like our Facebook:

3. Post pictures with the name of the circus and tell everyone about their Circus Day!

Circuses with the most posted Selfies with Red Noses will be specially recognized!!
