Circus Flora & COVID-19 Safety


All guests 5+ will be required to wear masks properly throughout the entire show, except for when eating or drinking.

Circus Flora looks forward to welcoming audiences back to the Big Top in Grand Center for our 35th season! Our new show, “The Trial of the Century,” runs October 7 through October 31.

Circus Flora will follow all City of St. Louis, CDC, and Kranzberg Arts Foundation guidelines throughout our season’s run. We ask that ticket-holders please check this webpage for any updates before your performance, as protocols may change. We will include up-to-date protocols in all pre-show email communications and will also update our social media pages.

Distancing restrictions have been lifted with the Big Top opening to full capacity. The Big Top features a flexible sidewall configuration, allowing tent flaps to be open for maximum air flow, and is therefore considered an open air venue. All patrons will be asked to use face coverings.

Circus Flora and the Kranzberg Arts Foundation will continue to monitor COVID-19 developments in consultation with the City, our local health departments, and medical experts. We are committed to providing you with a safe and welcoming environment to experience the magic of circus with your family.

What to Expect

  • Surfaces in the Big Top will be sanitized prior to each performance, and sanitization of high-touch surfaces will continue throughout the duration of each performance.

  • Sanitization stations with hand sanitizer and wipes will be available throughout the Big Top and the Hospitality Tent. Practice good hand hygiene, frequently washing or sanitizing hands.

  • Do not attend Circus Flora if you or a member of your family is feeling unwell, exhibits symptoms of COVID-19, or has been in close proximity to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19. We are happy to work with you to find a new date.

  • Our full program will be available digitally and can be accessed by scanning any of the QR code posters located throughout the Big Top.

Thank you, Circus Flora family, for helping us keep everyone healthy and safe! It is our delight to welcome you back to the Big Top in October.

P.S. Alongside City and County health departments, Circus Flora stresses the importance of getting a COVID-19 vaccine.
