For the first time in two years, the World’s Biggest Big Top Show, based in Hugo, OK, is returning to the San Juan County fairgrounds in Monticello.

The circus will present two shows on Saturday, May 17; the first at 2 p.m. and the second at 5 p.m.

The circus is brought to you by the San Juan County Chamber of Commerce, with proceeds going toward the Pioneer Day Celebration this July.

“This is the real deal, under a football field size big top tent,” said Bayley Hedglin, Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce. “When you first arrive, you find a carnival-like atmosphere with carnival food like funnel cake, hot dogs, and cotton candy. 

“There are rides for small children and tents where you can pet various animals including llamas and a hippopotamus.  You can also feed them. 

“Of course there are a couple of attractions that you won’t want to miss, mainly either riding the camels, or my favorite, the elephants. The show will amaze you, consisting of trapeze artist, motorcycle high wire and so much more.”

General admission tickets can be purchased in advance from the San Juan County Chamber of Commerce and at their ticket outlets.

In Monticello, tickets can be purchased from the Monticello City Offices and The San Juan Record.

In Blanding, tickets are available at the San Juan Record office.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for children. At the box office on Circus Day, they are $16 for adults and $10 for children. Infants under the age of 2 are free.

For four generations, the Carson and Barnes circus family has toured North America with the most traditional of American Big Top Circuses.

The Carson and Barnes Circus brings first class family entertainment to all parts of America-small towns to big cities, urban America and Native America, border to border and coast to coast.

Each year they search for the best acts from around the globe and present them along with their world famous animal acts to produce the World’s Biggest Big Top Show.
