Let’s run away! There’s nothing quite like the glamour, amazement, and magic of a traditional circus to bring us a night we’ll never forget. It’s a feast for the senses, with the smell of popcorn, the dazzling lights, and the high-energy music. This spring, the whole family will be entranced when the Royal Canadian International Circus 2024!, under the European Big Top, comes to Calgary! They will be performing for 17 amazing shows from May 24 – June 2, 2024, and the spectacle will be taking place just a short drive from the city at CrossIron Mills!
