Circus Vargas will be pitching up its blue and gold tent in Roseville soon. The circus is coming to town at the Westfield Galleria at Roseville Thursday, Aug. 9 through Monday, Aug. 13.
This year's Circus Vargas show will include a trapeze troupe, motorcycles, low wire, aerial artistry, juggling, balancing and a human rocket — the first in Circus Vargas history.
“We’ve created something really special here. It’s like an Original Circus-Musical!," said Kevin Venardos, Circus Vargas’ singing Ringmaster, in a news release. "Amazingly, and in a way different than I had once imagined, it represents another dream fulfilled. You never know how the pieces will fit together as the road bends over time. I am thrilled to be a contributor to this wonderful family tradition, and grateful for the chance to touch so many hearts.”    
Interactive Pre-Show
Thirty minutes before the show, children of all ages will have the chance to participate in an interactive pre-show. They will be guided through a crash course in circus skills with host and the “Iron Chin” Jon Weiss and his wife Laura.
About the Tent
Residents will start seeing the circus set up on Tuesday, Aug. 7. It takes 20 men about seven hours to raise the Big Top tent, which seats 1,200 people.
The tent consists of 90,000 square feet of canvas fabric and is supported by 500 individually placed stakes and over four miles of rope and cable weighing over 17 tons, according to a Circus Vargas news release.
