The Venardos Circus

The Venardos Circus,  a unique broadway-style Circus, is returning to Louisville, KY at Big Four Lawn at Waterfront Park from October 5-15th 2023

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.”

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.

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

With only two weeks in town, the shows are expected to completely sell out online.
