Vernados Circus at San Lorenzo Park
May 24 @ 7:00 pm - June 9 @ 8:30 pm
The Venardos Circus is coming to San Lorenzo Park along the Riverwalk in Santa Cruz CA, May 24th – June 9th.
This unique, family-oriented traveling circus troupe has been touring the country for four years and was recently featured on CBS Sunday Morning!
🎩 Created by former Ringling Bros. Ringmaster Kevin Venardos, this animal-free circus features a cast of aerialists, acrobats, comedians, jugglers, contortionists and daredevils hailing from around the world. The Broadway-style opening and closing singing and dancing add another level of storytelling and magic to the experience.
An interactive pre-show party takes place one hour before show time with opportunities to meet the cast, snap selfies and play games so be sure to come and get your seats early!
The main event lasts approximately 90 minutes, with a brief intermission. Attendees are encouraged to stay after the show to mingle with the performers and take group photos on stage with the cast for no additional charge.
Tickets are $5 more at the door than prices shown online, so save time and money and buy online in advance. When we sellout online there are no tickets available at the door.
Keep an eye out for our special Opening Night and Early Bird Pre-Sale discounts! 🐣
