This fall, Circus Flora makes its much-awaited return to the Big Top in Grand Center! “The Trial of the Century” begins Oct. 7 and runs through Oct. 31. Now in its 35th year, Circus Flora is renowned for bringing magic, laughter, and awe to families throughout the St. Louis region. Tickets start at just $15, making a trip to the circus an affordable outing – and one that your kids will be talking about for weeks!

“The Trial of the Century” offers a fun twist on courtroom drama. With Circus Flora assigned to the case, the Big Top becomes the courtroom, acrobats the evidence, and you yourself the jury! As the circus’ storytellers will describe, some misconduct has occurred in the tent. But all the witnesses saw something different, and all the evidence points to contradictory conclusions. The one certainty: you’re in for a wild ride of joy, beauty, and daring as you watch some of the best circus acts from around the world.

A true community organization, Circus Flora takes the needs of audiences into account. If anyone in your family has nut allergies, the “Peanut-Free Preview” on Oct. 7 is the perfect way to see the full show in a super-safe environment. On Oct. 21, Circus Flora offers the “Sensory-Friendly Performance,” which is tailored to audience members on the autism spectrum and/or with other sensory sensitivities. Plus, if you have small children who can’t quite sit still for a full show, the “Little Top” performances on Oct. 20 and Oct. 27 are ideal.
