Circus Maximus - The DeTour!

The next Circus Maximus will be on Sunday 20th of November at Cirkidz.

Awarded "Community Event of the Year 2014" in the City of Charles Sturt Australia Day awards, Circus Maximus was born in 2008 and is a once a year, eagerly anticipated showcase of our circus school students, performance program members, professional artist friends and members of Bowden's creative community. 

The day is designed to bring together our community, raise funds for the circus centre and includes performances, a shared lunch, raffle prizes and more. 

The SA Circus Centre space is transformed into a performance venue for around 800 Cirkidz students, their friends and families, which nurtures the next generation of circus artists and amazes the current generation of audiences.

Circus Maximus is entirely run and staffed by volunteers. If you are interested in helping on the day or joining the Friends of Circus Maximus volunteer organising committee, please click here to contact us.
