Get ready to be on the edge of your seat and challenge your perception of all the things circus can be! 

Featuring an exciting fusion of performance, join us for bucketloads of fun at this sensational smorgasbord of acrobatics, circus theatre, live music, contemporary dance and comedy clowning that goes outside the box of a traditional red nose. Take in wow-factor performances full of all sorts of flips and tricks, join in workshops and classes with the whole whānau, or pull up a beanbag and enjoy outdoor films with crowd favourite, The Greatest Showman and 1928 Charlie Chaplin classic, The Circus.  

Featuring some of Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland’s finest and favourite talent (The Dust Palace, Manubrium Circus, Flip n Fly, Circability), this wonderfully wacky weekend is not to be missed. So, pack a bag, round up your friends both young and old, and come run away with the circus!    

While you're visiting, make sure you stop by to enjoy a bite or a beverage from pop-up food trucks or the Container in the Square Café. 

This event is programmed in partnership with Manubrium Circus
