2021 Circus Bella: Free Summer Circus in the Park (Bay Area)

Circus Bella is excited to announce its triumphant return to the Bay Area Parks from Aug. 26 – Oct. 3, 2021 with its 12th Annual all new, open air, outdoor show: Humorous. A Post-Pandemic Season of Shenanigans!

This series of FREE performances, featuring some of the dazzling Circus Talent from the Bay Area and beyond, will delight and amaze audiences of all ages in a treasured family event for Children of All Ages.

Humorous is a celebration of the phantastic world we discover together through the simple gifts of wonder and laughter. Directed by Abigail Munn, the 60-minute performance features the gleeful Circus Bella Company – a diverse and talented troupe of acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, and clowns – performing to the live music of Rob Reich and the Circus Bella All-Star Band.  New costumes by Autumn Adamme and Dark Garden!
