Baraboo’s Big Top Circus Celebration

July 10 & 11, 2021

Baraboo will commemorate its heritage with a Circus Celebration on July 10 and 11. This weekend full of circus-themed fun will feature big top shows at Circus World, trolley tours of historic sites, live entertainment, a car show and an inspired “parade” of artistically enhanced elephants.

These events will substitute for the Big Top Parade, which is set to return in 2022.“We love seeing the downtown sidewalks fill up with spectators for the parade, but this year we’ll be able to extend the festivities throughout the community,” said Darren Hornby, executive director of the Baraboo Area Chamber of Commerce.
