Troy Circus 2023

August 11 - August 20

The Contemporary Circus and Immersive Arts Center (CCIAC) is presenting 10 days of circus events under a big top tent starting this Friday in Troy’s Prospect Park.

“You would have to travel to Montreal or Europe to experience the breadth, diversity and quality of programming we are offering in Troy this August,” said Aaron Marquise, CCIAC executive director. “We are proud to be showcasing artists from many different backgrounds to reflect the makeup of our audiences.”

The schedule includes an opening night cabaret, three performances by a professional touring company, a summer camp for kids, the premiere of an original circus show and a free family day picnic show — all exploring different facets of contemporary circus. None of the events feature performing animals, but instead put the focus on the incredible capabilities of the human body demonstrated through acrobatics, juggling, and more.

All activities occur under a 34 foot-tall, 4,000 square-foot tent that holds 250 people.

Some programs are free, some have an admission fee.
