UPCOMING EVENTS AND PROGRAMS

SPRING FAIRYTALE

MARCH 19TH 4PM , 2023

CAPITOLA MALL, UNDER THE BIG TOP TENT

Featuring wild acrobatics, hilarious comedy, and extreme skills, ‘Spring Fairytale’ is an original narrative. The Snow Woman brings Winter and sends our heroes on an adventure of peril and discovery. Pegasus and his backend struggle to cooperate as the wild Snow Hares seed a revolution in the land to bring back the Spring. The Woodsmen, the Fairy, & the Spring Sprite are just some of the colorful characters you will meet along the way. An eclectic blend of multi-cultural folklore, this heart warming tale is the memory making event for the whole family…

And thanks to the generous support of the sponsors and Flynn Creek Circus artists
