Zoppé Family Circus

The circus returns! Last season’s audiences were charmed and dazzled. Founded in 1842, the Zoppé Family Circus welcomes guests into its intimate 500-seat tent for a show that honors the best of the Old-World Italian tradition. Nino the Clown leads you on a journey that features acrobatic feats, equestrian showmanship, canine capers, clowning and plenty of audience participation! Giovanni Zoppé, the sixth-generation circus performer who plays Nino, says the show aims higher than what passes for circuses these days. "We try to touch every emotion during the show," he says. "They’ll laugh, they’ll cry, and they’ll feel for the characters." Bring your grandparents!
