•  Thanks CIRQUE DU SOLEIL for choosing Fern Street Circus as beneficiary for the performance of TORUK – The First Flight in San Diego. The 70 tickets sold raised nearly $5,700 to benefit Fern Street Circus’s free-of-charge After-School Circus Program to empower & engage youth in City Heights.

•  Thanks to all the artists, technicians, students, and audience members for making our 2016 Neighborhood Tour a rousing success. 3,300 people saw one of our shows - at 7 City parks, San Diego International Airport, and at 4 fall festivals for military families. Look for 2017 Neighborhood Tour next October!

Fern Street Circus in the National (& International) News!

Fern Street Circus named one of the 17 Circuses that are changing the world!


Fern Street Circus, founded in Mid-City San Diego, combines performance and education for community benefit. Our professional troupe brings together San Diego's finest circus, variety, and musical artists, working in consort with locally known visual artists who create a wonderful sense of place. Fern Street Circus is a show for all ages. 

We teach circus – principally in city rec centers – integrating students into the main Fern Street Circus core, so that these young people learn as they perform, and their families and neighbors see them in a new, positive light.
