  • The Flying Tunizianis will have you holding your breath as they flip through the air. This Venezuelan trapeze family will stun you with their incredible quadruple mid-air somersault and other complex feats.
  • Victor Moiseev's horizontal juggling must be seen to be believed. Watch in amazement as he manipulates objects in a choreographed performance and basically defies gravity.
  • Jenny Vidbel, a third-generation animal trainer, will bring you her adorable rescue animals from her Catskills home. Dogs, horses, and even farm animals will be putting their best feet forward to show you their tricks.

Know before you go

There will be a concession area before you enter the performance space. Save room for classic circus treats like cotton candy and hot dogs! This is a one-ring circus with stadium-type seating, so there are truly no bad seats.

Be sure to factor in time to explore National Harbor! There are all different types of dining options, stores, and attractions along the waterfront. Take a look at the National Harbor website to get an idea of what's around.
