We're Bringing World Circus Day to You!
Celebrate the culmination of our 25th anniversary season as we observe the 11th annual World Circus Day on May 9, 2020.

What will this event look like? We are talking CJ trivia, craft ideas to try at home, exciting content brought to you by your favorite coaches, alumni, students, and staff … and SO much more!
GIVE A LITTLE & GET A LOT: All donors who give $25 or more will receive our exclusive, customized #CJStrong digital toolkit emailed to them on May 9, which will include the following:

What is World Circus Day?
World Circus Day is the international day of circus arts celebration. It is an opportunity to raise public awareness, share the wonders of this magical world, and attract supporters and circus lovers by creating unforgettable moments of happiness.
Established in 2010 by H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie of Monaco to “publicize the role of circus as part of our shared cultural heritage,” World Circus Day is held each year with hundreds of circuses around the world participating in the celebration.
Circus Juventas participates in World Circus Day to remind our students that circus is performed all over the world and to keep us connected to the larger circus community.
