The Big Top is modeled after the traditional European “One Ring” circus, where no one is more than 50 feet away from the ring.
No wild or exotic animals perform in Big Apple Circus. The only animals included in the show are beloved rescue dogs and horses/ponies.
The circus has a history of diversity and female representation. This season women take the reins, led by ringmaster Stephanie Monseu.
From world-class aerialists to the world’s strongest mom, there’s something to delight everyone, young, old, and in between.

The Big Apple Circus comes from the Big Apple itself, New York City, where the first show took place in 1977.
