Coming to Sacramento & Stockton :: Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Circus!

I received complimentary event tickets for our local show. All opinions are 100% my own.

For my Sacramento area readers, the circus is coming to town! It's been a couple years since I last took my family, and I'm thrilled to be taking them this year. The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Circus presents Built To Amaze!, a spectacular show featuring more than 110 of the world’s best artists and athletes representing 17 countries, along with 95 exotic and domestic animals.
I hope you'll join my family and me as we experience The Greatest Show On Earth®! We'd love to see you there!

Ringmaster Andre McClain takes the Ringling Bros.® reins accompanied by his horse Comanche, to lead his funny and mischievous circus supervisors to construct a fantastic design of heart-pounding and wondrous performances sure to amaze and thrill audiences. Several unique acts this year include:

  • Nine-time international award-winning comedic animal presenting duo Alex and Irina Emelin of Russia introduce their uniquely-designed brand of magic and humor with their remarkable trained animals including poodles, ferrets, rabbits, snakes and more!
  • The Trampoline Tower Tumblers, a troupe of ten competitive aerial athletes from the Ukraine who launch themselves from trampolines to scale, repel and pass through a three-story high translucent tower.
  • The popular King Charles Troupe hailing from New York City brings one-wheeled excitement to the ring with a spirited and comedic basketball competition featuring ten whirling unicyclists.

In addition, the show features the electrifying high-wire acrobats, daredevil stunts on The Steel Vortex, the youngest female Human Cannonball, remarkable hand-balancing duos, the always hilarious Clown Alley…and of course no Ringling Bros. circus experience would be complete without our four-legged star performers including the majestic Bengal tigers presented by the charismatic “Taba” and a fun-filled Asian elephant dance party.

Clown Alley looks like fun. You can't have a circus without clowns!

Pre-Show Excitement
