Circuses in Paris, season 2018/2019

Every fall, circus shows come to Paris for a few months. Let’s have a look of the circus show – with or without clowns, with or without animals – but always dazzling.

The traditional circus season is on!

Every winter the circus season goes strong in Paris, especially with Christmas magic we find early under the Circus Tents (and the arenas) housing circuses. Whether they are traditional or contemporary, with or without animals, French or stranger, circus shows amaze children and adults.

Here are the circuses you can find in Paris for the season 2018/2019:
