More Info

The annual Neighborhood Tour brings together 10 professional circus artists, 4 musicians, 10 technicians, and 30 kids & teens for free-of-charge! This is a show of a lifetime for families in underserved neighborhoods where the circus performs. This year, in collaboration with Live Well San Diego, we are producing a free Community Health Fair at every one of 9 park venues.

Fern Street's circus students get to perform alongside their coaches in a professionally produced circus for audiences of over 300 per show - an experience of a lifetime!

Your contribution to Fern Street's 2019 campaign helps pay for the artists and technicians who work so hard to bring this special circus free-of-charge to parks in underserved . You help us teach and rehearse the kids who perform, who are so dedicated that they give up every weekend in October to put on costumes and makeup and perform their hearts out. 


Said some 1st-time audience members in 2018:

  •    “I enjoyed every second of it. It was amazing and awesome!"
  •    “Love it!”
  •    “Incredible.”
  •    “Thank you for bringing joy to children in the community.”

 Please join us as we make magic for audiences, circus kids, and working, professional artists.
