World Circus Day

Annually, on the third Saturday in April, World Circus Day emerges as a platform to promote awareness of the circus arts, spotlighting both amateur and professional performers.

In contrast to ancient Roman circuses, today's circus showcases a significant transformation. Fortunately, contemporary circuses have veered away from the violent spectacles of fighting gladiators and animal slaughter that characterized events in ancient Rome. The term "circus" itself traces its origins to the Latin word for circle, reflecting the circular amphitheaters where Romans staged their events. Despite evolving over the years, the core objective of circuses remains constant: captivating and entertaining the masses.
