On Saturday, June 25 the the Baraboo Area will come alive with events and activities as the Big Top Parade and Circus Celebration returns to downtown Baraboo. The Big Top Parade & Circus Celebration will feature concerts, children’s activities, carnival games, live performances, a concert on the Square and food vendors from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.

The main event — the Big Top Parade — kicks off at 11:00 a.m. Along with our grand marshal, the parade features over 75 traditional circus parade units and circus-themed entries created by community groups and businesses. Young and old will be enthralled by the circus wagons, marching bands, horses and other animals and of course, a cavalcade of clowns!

Before and after the parade, the Baraboo area and our downtown will be filled with family-friendly events. The entire community will be embracing the parade’s theme this year…
