CIRCUS IN COMMUNITIES
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 collaboration with locally known visual artists who create a magical performance space.
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.
