The show begins with a pre-show, an hour before show time, where everyone is encouraged to join the fun on the arena floor. This is the perfect time to meet the cast, try on costumes, learn some dance moves, learn circus skills, and have a chance to win a Ringling Bros. painting pachyderm!

This circus is a bit funny with ringmaster and mischievous Andre McClain who leads Ringling Bros. throughout the show. McClain works alongside Davis Vassallo, an award-winning, comedic clown. You will see high-energy and fiery competition of basketball with whirling unicyclists. You also won’t want to miss the amazing aerial cast act performed by the Dobrovitiskiy Troupe. They toss and flip through the air, only by each other’s hands, and keeping you at the edge of your seats the entire show! The show also features a crossbow act, single trapeze and much more.

This truly is a family event, entertaining for everyone and will only be in Des Moines for 3 days!
