St. Louis’ hometown circus is set to move prior to its upcoming season – but only a half block away. Previously, the circus took place on the lot next to Powell Hall. But last year, Circus Flora partnered with the Kranzberg Arts Foundation to help develop a permanent site for the circus.
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. And that more permanent solution means the circus no longer has to avoid the symphony's spring shows; it now plans to kick off its season in April.
