 Watch the story of the comeback of the Big Apple Circus:


BIG APPLE CIRCUS was founded in 1977 by circus performers Paul Binder and Michael Christensen with a mission to present authentic and thrilling circus arts, in the intimacy of the one-ring Big Top, where no seat is more than 50 feet from the performers. In addition to its world-renowned reputation for presenting exceptionally unique and astounding acts, BIG APPLE CIRCUS – known as the ‘Circus With A Heart’ – has distinguished itself by demonstrating a strong social conscience in its programming, maintaining a vital no wild or exotic animal’s policy. Additionally, BIG APPLE CIRCUS offers numerous community outreach programs including Circus of the Senses, sensory-friendly performances, and Circus for All, which provides access to the circus to those who are underprivileged and underserved. BigTop Works, the new owners of BIG APPLE CIRCUS, share a passion for, and history with, the circus arts and look forward to honoring the legacy of its 40-year history.
