Shrine Circus Tickets for Sale

The shrine circus was formed at the Light Guard Armory, in Detroit Michigan, for the Moslem Shrine Center. The Armory was demolished several years ago and it proved to be the ideal location for this historical event to start rolling.

In the beginning, the circus had only one-ring, but by 1925 it had grown to three rings. By the 1920s Shrine Circuses were being held throughout the country, and every year additional Shrine Centers started introducing circuses to their communities. In 2925, the Shrine Circus was transferred to a larger building at the State Fair Grounds. From here it continued to grow and prosper. In 1996, the show ran for 17 days with 40 performances, making it not only the oldest Shrine Circus, but also the biggest. The first Shrine Circus usually performs in Flint, Michigan in January every year. Then like a chain reaction, at least one Shrine Circus performs each week until late November. The last ones are usually held around Thanksgivings week in Evansville, Indiana and New Orleans, Louisiana.
