April 19th, 2018|

For more than 30 years, Circus Flora, a one-ring circus that makes St. Louis its home, has offered a circus show that’s best described as live theater.

Circus Flora to Get New, Permanent Home in Grand Center

December 14th, 2017|

But big changes are coming for the homegrown circus in 2018. Circus Flora is finally getting a home of its own — a vacant lot one just a block to the southwest of Powell Hall in Grand Center.
