The Chicago Contemporary Circus Festival is a world class festival in Chicago for local, national, and international circus artists, organizations, enthusiasts, and audiences. We strive to build an audience for contemporary circus while we promote and serve as a resource to organizations and artists who use contemporary circus in their work. The festival is an immersive week presenting performances from professional circus companies, master classes taught by professionals, panel discussions on the challenges, trends, and business of circus, networking events and workshops to assist circus artists, organizers, and presenters.

The next Festival will be March 6 - 12, 2017
