Carson & Barnes Circus

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, children of all ages... step right up and feast your eyes, because the circus is coming to town!!! The Carson & Barnes Circus will be entertaining Bastropians on Monday, March 9th in Mayfest Park (behind the American Legion in Bastrop) with shows at 4:30pm and 7:30pm AND on Tuesday, March 10th at Riverband Park in Smithville with shows at 4:30pm and 7:30pm.

The Carson & Barnes Circus features an amazing assortment of human and animal performers, led by the biggest stars of the Circus – The Incredible Carson & Barnes Elephants! Presented in traditional “Big Top” style, America’s oldest family-owned Circus brings animals and acrobats, clowns and daredevils, and a little old-time Circus Magic to more than 200 American cities each year.

Making his Carson & Barnes debut this year is Cirque du Soleil veteran, Luis Miguel Terry, who presents his astonishing mastery of bounce juggling. Returning favorites include Mexico’s Rosales Family, who bring four generations of Circus tradition to the center ring. The Dominguez Extreme Riders display motorcycling precision mixed with fearless fortitude. Gabriella Cavallini delivers breathtaking trapeze thrills while perched high in the air. Last but not least, Ringmaster Jairo Ojeda keeps the show moving at a rapid-fire pace.

Tickets prices range from $12-$22/adult and $6-$16/child. Children under the age of 2 are free if they will be sitting in someone's lap. There are also coupons available for FREE kids admission with the purchase of a paid adult, which can be found at various locations around town or online here.
