The designation is intended to set aside one day when circus lovers throughout the world - owners, directors, artists, staffs, fans, friends and even casual circus-goers - can pay special tribute to the circus and the incredible contributions it has made to our shared culture.
If you have not already planned to attend a circus (or introduce a kid to the circus experience), then let's hope you find some way to celebrate this inaugural event, whether it's a fan potluck supper, showing a circus movie to friends or just using your imagination to honor the institution that we all hold dear. Also, if you are planning an event, please register it at www.circusfederation.org (under World Circus Day) . . . and check out what circus supporters around the world are doing to recognize World Circus Day.
