Midnight Circus

This autumn, the celebrated Midnight Circus is hitting Chicago parks with an amazing and affordable series of family-friendly shows. Voted the "Best Annual Family Event" by Time Out Chicago Kids, a Midnight Circus in the Parks performance is not to be missed, and with several upcoming performances in September and October at a variety of Chicago parks, you're sure to find a show that fits your busy back-to-school schedule.

Our family attends the circus every year that it pops up in our neighborhood park. The Midnight Circus is a group of talented performers from around the world - actors, acrobats, aerialists, clowns, contortionists, singers, dancer and musicians - that share a vision for bringing world-class entertainment into the community, making it accessible to all.

Indeed, these intimate performances really do bring people together under a traditional big top, with performers that go out of their way to interact and engage with audience members. Everyone in your family will be dazzled by the incredible feats that the Midnight Circus members present before your very eyes. I promise that you'll either be laughing or on the edge of your seat for the duration of the show.
