Empire Circus - POSTPONED

Fri Nov 12, 2021
12:00pm ET
6 and up

Empire Circus is taking a hiatus from performances. All tickets will be refunded via the original point of purchase.

Setting a new stage for family entertainment and introducing a modern take on the iconic Bozo the Clown, Empire Circus transforms Empire Stores—and its picturesque courtyard between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges—into an awe-inspiring, choose-your-own-adventure circus experience.

Audience members are given the chance to become a courageous crew member, a Grand Prize Game show contestant, or even a star aerialist! With each audience member guiding their own path, Bozo presents a one-of-a-kind circus spectacular where the audience finds itself under, above, and right in the middle of the action — with free goodies, surprises, & fun around every nook and cranny.

Purchase tickets online, in advance.

All guests over twelve (12) years of age must be fully vaccinated to enter Empire Circus and must show digital or physical proof of vaccination and ID upon entry. Guests with a medical or religious exemption must show a negative COVID-19 test result. Masks are required for all guests.

Due to the nature of the show, Empire Circus is able to limit capacity and provide audiences with the space to move through the show at their own pace in a covered, open-air, & temperature-controlled environment.
