One of Circus Juventas’ most exciting events is our annual gala, an evening that pairs our students’ amazing performances with a three-course meal, a silent auction and raffle, and so much more!
Besides our spring and summer shows, the Circus Juventas Annual Gala is the only time our students perform in our big top, making this the social event of the season. Nowhere else in the Twin Cities does a gala feature acrobats, contortionists, and trapeze artists alongside drinks, dinner, dancing, and additional live entertainment.
As our major fundraiser of the year, the gala supports all programming at Circus Juventas.
This year, America’s favorite comic daredevil Bello Nock will be the honored guest and performer at the 2017 Gala celebrating Circus Juventas’ 23rd year. Long-time champion of Circus Juventas, U.S. Congresswoman Betty McCollum will serve as the gala’s honorary co-host. Former Cities 97 radio hosts Brian “BT” Turner and Lee Valsvik reunite to serve as celebrity emcees.
The success of the gala relies heavily on volunteers and donations from individuals and business for auction items – for which we are incredibly grateful.
It’s a social highlight of the year, and we love hosting this event for our community!
