Description

The Circus is coming to town! Redwood City is pleased to welcome, for the sixth year, Zoppé, An Italian Family Circus from October 11th through October 20th for spectacular two-hour performances that will enthrall the entire family!

The Zoppé Family Circus welcomes guests into the intimate 500 seat tent for a one-ring circus that honors the best history of the Old-World Italian tradition. Starring Nino the clown, and featuring his son Julien, the circus is propelled by a central story (as opposed to individual acts) that showcases acrobatic feats, equestrian showmanship, canine capers, clowning and plenty of audience participation. The Circus evokes something from a picture book: the clown, the trapeze, the dancing dogs, the ring and the tent, created to be reminiscent of the one-ring European family circuses of the last century and will thrill and amaze children and adults alike with its breathtaking stunts and astonishing acrobatics.

This year features two new exciting acts: a double trapeze act called the Daring Jones Duo, who will inspire audiences with disciplined artistic and athletic risk, and A Unicycle Built for Two, an upbeat, stylish act that blends the unicycle, acrobatics, and light-hearted romance.

The Circus Tent has a new home this year at Red Morton Park, specifically 1455 Madison Ave. There are multiple parking lots distributed around the park and it is an easy stroll to the tent. On your stroll, see why Red Morton Park was voted Bay Area Parent Magazines “Family Favorite” park of 2013 with it's vast green lawns perfect for lounging, flower gardens, and kid's playground. Plus, participants who bike to the park will be awarded with a FREE small popcorn! The Zoppé Family Circus is a once-a-year event not to be missed, so get your tickets early!

On the treament of their animals...
The Zoppe Circus uses only domestic animals - dogs and horses - who are the personal pets of their owners. As family-owned pets, the animals are raised, transported and housed with expert, loving care. Some of the dogs in the show have been rescued from animal shelters by the Zoppe family.
