Where is the Circus Flora Big Top located? Where can I park?

We are located in the parking lot right behind Powell Hall at the corner of Grand and Samuel Shepherd. Patrons can park in any of the open lots in Grand Center or take advantage of the abundant street parking. Handicap parking is available in the front portion of the lot we are located in, directly behind Powell Hall, accessible from Samuel Shepherd. We do not manage the parking lots, so we don’t set prices, but they are typically around $10.

When does everything open?

The lot will open one hour prior to any performance. That allows access to concessions, merchandise, restrooms and pre-show entertainment. The Big Top tent will open a half hour prior to any performance. At that point, seating for the shows begin.

Do toddlers and babies need a ticket to get in?

All of our ticket prices are based on when you come to the show and where you sit. We do not have adult, children, student, senior, etc. pricing. However, if a child is 2 or under and sits on a lap, they do not require a ticket.

Is there handicap accessible seating?

We do have handicap accessible seating inside our Big Top tent. For handicap accessible seating, please contact our Box Office Manager, Hope Johnson, at 314.289.4044 or

Can we take photos of the performance?

Unlike in years past, general photography is now allowed during the performance. In fact, we encourage patrons to take photos and share with everyone they know. However, there is still no flash photography. Unexpected flashes can be dangerous to the performers and is prohibited.
