The Royal Canadian International Circus returns with its spectacular family show and an exhilarating experience your family will never forget. This year, they are setting up their Magnificent Big Top in Ontario throughout the summer months for 82 awe-inspiring shows in six locations spanning from one corner of the Greater Toronto Area to the other.

Something about that big striped tent excites kids and adults alike! To catch big shows, you usually have to trek downtown. Instead, Royal Canadian International Circus sets up their tents at convenient mall locations in neighbourhoods around the GTA. Along with encore presentations in Etobicoke, Scarborough, Mississauga and Burlington, the tour now includes Brampton and Pickering.

“Under the Magnificent Big Top”

As always, this circus mesmerizes, astounds and captivates audience members of all ages. So, get ready to sit on the edge of your seats in amazement! The show is chock-full of exciting acts, with so much variety that it covers the entire spectrum of circus performances. Not only that but the full experience and atmosphere are welcoming and fun.

“Under the Magnificent Big Top” is an all-new show jam-packed with explosive live entertainment. For instance, there are high-flying acrobatics, death-defying tricks, towering feats of strength and devilishly precarious aerials.

It is also important to note that the show contains no exotic or endangered animals. Instead, all the thrilling acts are performed by incredibly talented human beings! The elite troop of performers is made from multiple circus families who share their talent under the motto “families perform for families”. Their acts arrive from countries around the world, including Argentina, Canada, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, Switzerland and the United States.
