Family Circus

Fun for the whole family, The Family Fun Circus is coming to town!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We are a one ring European Style Circus with old circus traditions. The ring is surrounded with seating, and everyone is up close to the non-stop action. The show is family owned and operated and we travel to the smaller communities throughout the United States. Circus goers are able to enjoy the Clowns, Acrobats, Aerialists, & many, many more. Each show lasts about an hour and a half. The tent opens an hour early so you can get a good seat, jump in the moon bounce, & ride the child friendly ponies. Cotton Candy, Popcorn, Hot dogs, & much more is available in our concessions area. For added excitement arrive early in the morning to see the tent go up, which is truly a fascinating sight!

    The Big Top Family Fun Circus came to town the other day and provided a top notch experience for the whole family. I would highly recommend this circus to any community or business sponsor. They were neat, polite, and privided some great talent. One of America’s oldest preforming arts. You can’t go wrong!

    It was a pleasure having the Family Fun Circus at our fairgrounds this past weekend. The whole company was freindly and curtious. We have not had a circus here in 4 years and I know the community enjoyed having a chance to see a circus again. The next day you could not tell they had been here. Everything was clean and neat. I would enjoy having them back again.

    Thanks for making the call to the city last month. I’ve received nothing but positive feed back from those who attended and from those who heard about the great experience that it was. Our only disappointment was that our local press was not permitted into the big top. I regret that I was not made aware of this issue until the day after. Perhaps next time we can make arrangements for him to get a couple of photos of our excited children enjoying the show? That was what he wanted. He of all people understands copyright issues.
    Also, I understand that another gentleman (unknown to me personally) was persisting in taking photos of the performers. Your ring master handled the situation beautifully, but firmly. I regret that the incident had to happen at all. It was embarrassing for me.
    Thanks, again for livening up our sleepy little city. The Cruise Night was also a success – the circus seemed to have no impact on them at all, yet the tent was full for the first show and perhaps half full for the second. I hope your time in Mount Carroll was worth the effort. Chewy was a splendid communicator and easy to work with. The entire crew under his direction has my respect and appreciation for the fine job they did. And, like all the others commented, the circus left no mess, whatsoever. You live up to your reputation!

    What do you call a big pink tent, assorted games and concessions, a jolly crowd of excited children (and adults), magic, juggling, animals, Sponge Bob and more? The Family Fun Circus! This is one troupe that lives up to its name. More over, I witnessed their set up in the rain and was most impressed with the cooperation amongst the hardworking crew. No offensive language to be heard; only instructions and gratitude could be heard above the the sound of rain pounding on the canvas. Thank you for bringing wholesome entertainment to our quiet summer days.

    To whom it may concern,

    On September 4, 2009 the Family Fun Circus came to Chippewa Falls, WI and held two show at 5:00 and 7:30 pm. The quality and professionalism of the staff and crew was greatly appreciated as all ages enjoyed a wonderful time under the big tent. The Circus set up early and by the next morning everything was picked up and the grounds were cleaned and clear by Circus personnel.

    I would highly recommend the Family Fun Circus to any town as an alternative for family entertainment. The children really loved the experience.

    Thank you Mr. Davenport and crew for a great event,

    I am trying to get info on the admission prices for the family fun circus that is being held wednesday at the national guard armory in Monroe,N.C. I have tickets for getting two kids in for one adult admission. I have two adults coming and 5 children but my lil one is only one yr old so i thought he was probably free. I am planning to come on wednesday(tomorrow) so i need to know the admission. I cannot find them on the website pages. Thanks!

    I was just wondering, there was a circus act in Louisburg, NC today at the armory that called themselves “Family Fun Circus” and was wondering if this was one of your acts. They were really good and all of them were family members that looked to be of American Indian and/or Mexican heritage. If this one of your acts, do you know who they were?

    February 27, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    • familyfuncircus

      Yes they are of Mexican recent. I am glad you liked the performance and I’m sure they will appreciate your kind words.

    I had no idea the circus was even coming to Springtown until I saw the “little” bigtop when I dropped off my 8 year old for school. My time in the military allowed me to travel all over the United States and several foreign countries. I have seen many a circus and will admit that I was not the least bit interested in giving this circus a chance due to it’s small size and outward appearance. But, my 8 year old said a couple of his friends had attended the first night of the two night showing and loved it. So, we loaded up the family and headed out on a weeknight not knowing what to expect. As I have a 3 year old that just does not know how to behave in public, I figured this would be a disaster. When the wife told me that admission was $15 for adults and the kids were free, I blew a gasket knowing that after paying $30 one of us would more than likely have to leave when the 2 year old got bored. Well, let’s just say that never happened! He sat there for 2 hours straight and was mesmerized……. He didn’t even want to leave when the show was over. Now that it is over, I can say without a doubt, this is the best circus performance I have ever seen. Sure, there are some draw backs such as limited, kinda wobbly seating, stinky porta potties for restrooms and way to many intermissions to sale souvenirs….. But, now that I have highlighted what I did not like about it, let’s talk about what I did like about it… It was everything I like about the big name circus without all the stuff I don’t like about the big name circus. I hate going to the big circus and there be several different things going on in several different rings at the same time and depending on where your setting, you may or may not have a good view of the action.. There was not a bad seat in the house, it was all up close and personal…. The women were beautiful and the performers were talented. And my very favorite part of this circus was when I discovered that the lady that sold me my popcorn was also the very talented hula hoop girl. The lady that sold me my beverage was also the dog trainer and a clown, the juggler was the human cannonball and a clown as well. Even the ringmaster had double or triple duty…… So, to wrap this review up, all I will say is that I will continue to follow this little circus and if I see it within an hours drive of my home, you can write it down on the calendar as a family outing……. Thanks for a wonderful experience and we look forward to doing it again…………
