Important Information About our 69th Performance Season 

Updated 9/22/21:  Thank you to all of our sponsors and all of our fans who make the Wenatchee Youth Circus possible!  We appreciate ALL of you and we miss you dearly!

The Wenatchee Youth Circus has always taken measures to keep our performers and our audiences safe and we are working hard to reopen safety when we are given permission to do so. We will continue to monitor and assess the situation to determine when our shows will continue. 

Our trainers, Board of Directors and volunteers are currently working to develop and implement safety measures that will keep our performers, trainers, volunteers and partners safe and healthy as well as protect our audiences and keep them safe as well when we are allowed to perform again.

We are excited to resume our practices for 2021 and we are finally able to bring you our first performance since 2019 at the Leavenworth Autumn Leaf Festival on Saturday, September 25, 2021 from 2-5pm (see flyer above).

We would like to thank each of our sponsors and all who donate and come to watch us perform. We could not do what we do without your support so THANK YOU! We will miss you all and hope to be back to a full schedule in 2022. Please continue to check back for updates.

Throughout 2021, we are continuing our fundraising efforts so that we can come back strong when that time comes. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation, you may do so by clicking on our donation link below.

We hope that you are all staying safe and healthy and spending lots of quality time with family during this unprecedented time we are finding ourselves in.

We will post our show information for 2022 as the information becomes available.

Every summer this amazing traveling show comes to lots throughout the Great Northwest.

For kids -- this is an opportunity to learn aerial arts, wire and fire acts, flying trapeze, acting, singing, clowning and so much more. For under $50 per year for the average family, your kids can develop an amazing variety of skillsets.

For parents -- this is like free mini-vacations all over the state of Washington all summer long. Join us on any trips you can; bring a tent or an RV; we will feed your family for the weekend and provide the place for you to camp; you can help us with the show and your kids get a chance to perform.

For families with several kids -- all practices and performances are in the same place, even if you have little and big kids.  We will find roles for little kids in show while the older ones build performance skills and shine.

Winter practices start in January at Orchard Middle School in Wenatchee.  Download forms from this site.  Get them properly notarized, bring them with you with a check for dues, and you can start your circus career this week!
