The Zoppé Italian Family Circus takes family entertainment to new heights this year, performing matinée and evening shows from October 7th through the 23rd under the intimate, one-ring tent in beautiful Red Morton Park in Redwood City.

The Zoppé Circus brings an all new show for its 9th year, called "Ricominciare" (ree-koh-min-CHAR-ay) meaning recommence, begin again and restart. This fresh new show will host an amazing lineup of performers featuring La Tarumba Equestrians who fuse Circus with Theatre, Music and the Equestrian arts. Additionally, 5th Generation Circus performer Denisse Santos from Mexico brings an exciting flying trapeze show to the tent, while Ring Master Raoul Gomiero from Italy pulls the audience into the emotions of the show for an exciting new wild ride this year while juggler Liam Halstead wows the audience with his amazing feats.

Founded in 1842 by a French street clown and a Hungarian equestrienne ballerina, this traditional European traveling circus features acrobatic feats, equestrian showmanship, canine capers, clowning and plenty of audience participation. Giovanni Zoppé, a sixth-generation circus performer who stars as Nino the Clown, captures the hearts of the audience with his playful antics. “We try to touch every emotion during the show,” he says. “They’ll laugh, they’ll cry, and they’ll feel for the characters. It’s more of an event than a show.”

"Plus, the show changes every year," explains Zoppé. "So no worries if you saw last year's Redwood City gig. This year is a new beginning with many new features."
