About Peru Amateur Circus

Each year approximately 200 youth from Miami County ages 7-21, supported by a tremendous number of adult volunteers, presents 10 performances during an eight day period in mid July. This show offers everything from an all girl 7 person pyrimid on the High Wire to Flying Trapeze, tumbling, jugglers, trampoline and clowns to name a few, all in an air conditioned arena. There is also a live 75 piece band ! The festival also features a giant midway filled with rides, food booths, games and much more. The Circus City Festival Parade is held on the last Saturday at 10:00 a.m and is the only circus parade in the country. Our Museum features artifacts from the past and present. The Gift Shop is full of circus T-shirts and souvenirs.
