The Royal Canadian International Circus has been bringing its circus magic to the USA and Canada over the last 5 months, and their next stops are East Rutherford, New Jersey and Columbus, Georgia! Read on as we pull back the curtains and reveal all about who we are and what sensational acts we have in store for you.

The Big Top

Our Big Top and Circus History

The Royal Canadian Circus is a long-standing and well-known circus organization. We put on shows that mix old-fashioned and modern performances, making it a fun event for both families and individuals. With a rich history, the circus features amazing acrobats, brave aerial performers, and many more acts under our  iconic red and yellow big tent. 

The Royal Canadian Circus stems from the Zerbini Family Circus, representing over 250 years of circus history. The Zerbini family, originally from France, and its famous big top circus have traveled the world sharing their talents with circus audiences on three continents since 1763!

Going to the Royal Canadian Circus is a real chance to experience a live entertainment tradition that has been around for centuries!

The Tour

Our 2023 tour is putting on 198 spectacular shows across Canada and the USA. Our talented performers have captivated audiences across the continent, from the stunning landscapes of western Canada to the vibrant cities of the east. Every show has been a magical experience for families, friends, and thrill-seekers of all ages.

High wire act

See here the Globe of Death led by Hugo Fernandez. You will be on the edge of your seat while they throttle their motorbikes around the inside of a heavy steel cage, performing stunts while riding up to 50mph!

Something totally different but equally memerizing, the TZ Ladies of the Air from Mexico, Peru, United States, Argentina, and Canada. These women will amaze you with their elegance and beauty as they dance and perform aerialist acts high above the circus ring.

Fantastic Five Guerrero High Wire Troupe

Featured on Germany’s version of America’s Got Talent and hailed as the only high-wire act of its kind in North America, the Fantastic Five Guerrero High Wire Troupe are one of this year’s headliners. Stare in awe as they execute dynamic acrobatic maneuvers 25 feet in the air. These daring performers navigate bicycles across the high wire, plus leap, skip, jump 3- wide over each other and dance!
