Circus Campus in Collaboration with Philadelphia Fringe Fest
Our hub strives to showcase the skills & variety of the incredible teachers, students, performers & creators of our community.
This fall, Circus Campus hosts its inaugural hub with the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, entitled Circus Campus Presents. Since the establishment of Circus Campus in 2017 we’ve been fostering a tight-knit community of teachers, students, performers, creators, movers & shakers. Our hub strives to showcase the skills & variety of these incredible human beings. Many of the hub performers are circus artists, but we also host musicians, poets, dancers and theatre artists.
We invite everyone from the Philadelphia metropolitan area to visit our restored church facility in leafy-green West Mt. Airy, located directly adjacent to Upsal Station. And who knows? While you’re here you might want to try out juggling, tightwire-walking, or trapeze for yourself. Circus Campus is an educational headquarters, and it’s also a home for some of the most unique talent in the Philadelphia area.
Doors always open 15 minutes before show start. Click on Show to Purchase Tickets!
