Circus Flora, St. Louis' original one-ring circus, is now in its 33rd season! This beloved show is an unbelievable mix of excitement, charm, daring, and comedy, all under an intimate Big Top setting. See mesmerizing circus acts, storytellers and performers in this year's show, The Caper in Aisle 6.
In The Caper in Aisle 6, a grocery store becomes a place of intrigue and excitement when an ancient and powerful substance, long thought to be gone from the Earth, is found in the unlikeliest of places. What secrets does aisle 6 hold, and what adventures will it set in motion? To help answer these questions, Circus Flora has assembled the most breathtaking circus acts from all over the world: acrobats, aerialists, comedians, high-wire daredevils, and a one-of-a-kind Flying Trapeze act that your family will love.
An annual St. Louis family favorite for more than 30 years, Circus Flora features world-class talent in an intimate setting perfect for all ages. Daytime and evening shows are held daily except for Mondays June 6 through June 30, with special 10 a.m. performances for young children, a sensory-friendly performance and a special Peanut-Free Preview night for those with nut allergies.
