Experience the Circus Before its Final Shows in May 2017

January 16, 2017 by Amy

Circus Grand Finale

After 146 years, the “Greatest Show on Earth” will come to an end. Citing various business reasons for making the tough decision to retire Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Feld Entertainment confirmed the news on Jan. 14, and announced that the final shows will take place in May 2017.



See the Circus One Last Time

Fortunately, the news broke with five months’ worth of shows still on the horizon, so there’s still time to bid farewell to the circus in person.

For 2017, there are two different Ringling Bros shows touring the country including Out of This World and Circus Xtreme. Out of This World features futuristic elements fit for the whole family, such as acrobats, clowns, daredevil stunts, and more, while Circus Xtreme boasts spectacles not before seen at past Ringling Bros shows, offering audiences a truly unique live experience.
