Nothing is more exciting or more nostalgic than attending a circus. The bright colors, the impressive acrobats, cheerful music, and the larger than life animals are all trademarks of the long-running circus tradition.


Before the weather turns chilly, enjoy the sights and sounds of the circus with your friends and family by attending a unique circus show in one of Chicago’s parks. Midnight Circus is a troupe of performers who were inspired by the European circus tradition which was known for offering circus entertainment in a smaller, more intimate way than what we think of today. Midnight Circus seeks to get rid of the need to travel far, spend lots of money and battle traffic to enjoy everything the circus has to offer. The performers put on a spectacular, world-class show within Chicago’s communities. This arrangement makes the circus accessible to more people and builds community spirit all at once.

Midnight circus will be in various parks around Chicago until October 9th, allowing you plenty of time to grab tickets and make your way to the park closest to you. Chech out their website for specific dates and times, and enjoy your time under the big top!
