The Venardos Circus

recurring event

The Venardos Circus is returning to Louisville Kentucky! Opening on Dec2nd at Big Four Lawn at Waterfront Park until Dec 12th!

Created by former Ringling Bros. Ringmaster Kevin Venardos (veh-NARR-dos), the Venardos Circus wraps world-class animal-free circus acts into a Broadway Musical-style format dubbed “The American Circus with the heart of a Broadway Show.”

With only two weeks in town, the shows are expected to completely sell out online.  Guests can expect to be transported back in time to the center ring of a centuries-old tradition, but one that has been reinvented for the next generation. With an amazing assortment of aerialists, acrobats, juggling, balancing, comedy, daredevilry, magic, musical production, and MUCH more, this amazing Circus experience will truly delight Adults and Kids of all ages.

Venardos Circus proudly features its own custom-made big-top, a classic red-and-white striped tent, with an intimate feel and limited seating. The tent is cooled or warmed to create a comfortable environment and shows continue rain or shine.

One hour before each showtime, the doors to the circus open with preshow performance attractions to enjoy. Classic circus treats like Popcorn, Cotton Candy, Hot Dogs, Sno Cones, Lemonade and more are available.

The main event lasts approximately 90 minutes, with a brief intermission.

Social Distancing and masking protocols will follow local ordinances if and when they are required. See our website for specific requirements.

Tickets are more expensive at the door than prices shown online, so save time and money and buy online in advance. When we sell out online there are no tickets available at the door.
