Participants Information & Forms

We invite you to be among the parade participants of Baraboo’s Big Top Parade & Circus Celebration Day.

This event is a celebration of Baraboo’s Circus Heritage. It includes Live Music, Kids Zone, Circus Wagons on Display, costumes and live circus performances – and of course, the Big Top Parade at 11:00!

On July 22, 2017 an estimated 30,000 people came to Baraboo to see the parade. With a crowd this size, the economic impact to our community is over $2 million.

Broadcast, print and social media covered the event for weeks leading up to and following the parade. WRPQ/retro TV 43 will once again broadcast the event locally.

We ask that all participants read the Parade Rules and Guidelines. Thanks!
