Circus

Coming Summer 2023

The Lewis & Clark Circus, one of America’s last big top shows,
is coming to the Geneseo Park District's Athletic Field

Founded in 2004, the Lewis & Clark Circus has entertained children of all ages across the United States. The audience will enjoy watching world-class circus artists from the comfort of chairs instead of bleachers. The show takes place on a custom-built stage, complete with theatrical lighting.

This year’s performances include returning audience favorites and several acts that are making their US debut. Brazil’s Clown Prince of Laughter, Grillo the Great, will return with his mix of comedy and magic. Also returning this year is the Lewis & Clark Aerial Ballet which will be performed twenty feet in the air.

New this year will be displays of fast paced juggling, spine-bending contortion, and extreme balance acts. Guaranteed to be a hit with the audience, is our master of balance who will stack twelve chairs on top of each other creating a leaning tower of chairs that he will then perform a series of hand stands on.

 

SHOWTIMES

Guests are invited to come one-hour early to enjoy gourmet circus treats such as cotton candy, popcorn, and nachos. Kids (and adults) can also get their face painted before the show.
