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. 

Tickets range in price from $10 to $60. Children 2 and under are free when seated on an adult's lap. 

Little Top Performances are at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 12, 19 and 26. Little Top Performances feature a one-hour show, perfect for little ones or anyone who prefers a shorter performance. 

Thursday, June 20 at 1 p.m. is a sensory friendly performance. This special one-hour performance is tailored for individuals on the autism spectrum, those with visual impairments or other sensory needs. Minor changes will be made to the lighting and sound to create a comfortable, enjoyable environment. 

Special shows also include the Peanut-Free Preview on June 6 at 7 p.m., which allows those with peanut allergies the opportunity to enjoy the magic of Circus Flora in a safe environment. (To maintain a peanut-free environment, no outside food or beverages allowed.)

Blood, Flood or Vomit: How I Taught My Kids to Be More Independent

Once upon a time, well before we had children, I sat down to have a conversation with my husband. Looking back now, it was a magical twenty minutes. Perhaps we talked about something somewhat important, like our monthly financial spreadsheet, or something extremely important, like what restaurant we were going to for dinner. The point isn’t what the conversation was about. The point is that once upon a time we were able to have an entire uninterrupted conversation.
