Garden Bros Circus is coming to the Wilmington area (Winnabow to be exact) this weekend!

It’s time to call in the big tops. Showcasing style and tons of family-friendly fun and flair, Garden Bros Circus has earned a name for itself by entertaining families for more than 100 years. Originally gaining traction in Toronto, the circus has been passed down in the family for three generations and performs in cities around the U.S. Now the circus is coming to Winnabow, just 15 minutes from Wilmington.

It is happening this Thursday to Sunday, October 26 to 29, so get ready for performances chock full of special effects and concert-style lighting. Attendees can expect a human cannonball and a human slingshot, family-friendly comedy, Olate Performing Dogs (you might recognize them from America’s Got Talent!), motorcycle tricks and more. In essence, the Garden Bros Circus is a can’t-miss 1.5-hour show featuring “humans gone wild.”

To boot, circus snacks abound, from cotton candy and popcorn to funnel cakes and snow cones. And show up early to meet the circus stars, get your face paint on, catch a ride on the monster slide or jump on the moon bounce.
