The 43rd Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival

The 43rd Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival will take place from 17 to 27 January 2019.

Join the Festival of luxury and elegance!

This year, over 150 artistes from 15 countries will compete in the famous ring of the Fontvieille big top to win the most sought after prizes in the World of circus: the Gold, Silver and Bronze Clowns which reward their careers.
We proudly present the Royal Circus from Russia, led by Gia Eradze. Gia has created a unique style, a subtle mix of luxury and modernity, and the costumes worn by the 68 artists and dancers, genuine haute couture pieces, will undeniably be one of the highlights of the 2019 edition.
Among the other acts, we are proud to announce the presence of the triple mast act presented by the National Acrobatic Troupe of China.
Martin Lacey jr will present his unique new lion act, a wonderful and astonishing demonstration of partnership between the trainer and his animals.
German animal trainer Marcel Kremer will surprise the audiences, performing with five colossal American bison in the ring.

The 43rd edition will honour the circus tradition, promote creativity and continue to attract you with acts that are more breathtaking than ever!
