Giveaway: The Big Apple Circus is Coming to Town!

The Big Apple Circus is returning to the DC area with a spectacular new show for it’s 41st season! Coming to National Harbor February 14 – March 24, this year’s extravaganza will feature real-life wonder women, led by new ringmaster Stephanie Monseu.

World-renowned for its one-ring, intimate, and artistic style — where no seat is more than 50 feet from the performers — Big Apple Circus is passionate about revitalizing the circus for modern-day audiences with unique and astounding human feats in the ring and enough sizzle outside the ring to entertain guests from the very moment they enter.

The season promises another sensational experience filled with Big Apple’s roster of superhero talents, ready to incite jaw-dropping awe and sheer joy in audiences of all ages. Ringmaster Monseu will be joined in the ring by a multitude of fierce female-led acts and more, including the “strongest mom in the world,” performers will (literally) bounce off the walls in a feisty trampoline act, a double wide trapeze act showcasing seven fliers & two catchers in addition to the quadruple somersault, a daring and balletic dual aerial straps act, a gravity-defying horizontal juggler, hilarity from circus clowns, and many more phenomenal acts.

This year, adults and children can also experience new pre-show thrills and sample an array of culinary delights. Upgrades to the food selection include bespoke circus classics and divine cocktail creations by one of the nation’s top mixologists Pamela Wiznitzer (three-time “American Bartender of the Year” nominee). In addition to tasty bites and bevies for the general public, the VIP Experience in the Mirror Room is peppered with eye-popping fun activities and photo-ops galore.
