Big Apple Circus; the show dedicated to spreading wonder and whimsy, is back in the DMV for its second year! From February 14-March 24, 2019 the Big Apple Circus will transform National Harbor into a surreal wonderland for families!
Children will love the wildly creative acts of strength at this year’s show, featuring performers (literally) bouncing off the walls in trampoline acts; double wide trapeze acts with seven high-flying performers and two catchers; a gravity-defying horizontal juggling act; and, of course, the beloved rescue horses and dogs trained by seven-year Big Apple Circus veteran Jenny Vibel.
We love the inclusivity of this Circus too. Big Apple Circus will offer Circus of the Senses on March 14, with enhanced experiences for audiences who are blind, deaf or low-vision. A sensory-friendly autism performance on February 22 and 23 will feature lowered light and sound levels, a descriptive social story showing the different areas and acts involved with the circus and a “calming center” that can be accessed at any point during the show.
With no seat further than 50 feet away from the ring, families can enjoy a front row seat with tickets starting at just $15 each, with over-the-top VIP upgrades available for just $25.
The regular performance schedule is Wednesdays at 11am & 7pm; Thursdays at 11am & 7pm; Fridays at 11am & 7pm; Saturdays at 11am, 3pm & 7pm; and Sundays at 12pm & 4pm. As there are schedule variances, please refer to the most up-to-date calendar on the website.
