The 10th Annual World Circus Day will be celebrated around the world on Saturday, April 20th 2019. The Fédération Mondiale du Cirque, whose stated mantra is “Preserving circus culture and promoting the art of happiness” is presided over with the patronage of H.S.H Princess Stephanie of Monaco.

The website describes the spirit behind the holiday as such “ World Circus Day is a unique opportunity all over the Globe to celebrate together our performing art-form. We are all proud to be representatives of circus arts and WCD serves to demonstrate that to the entire World. The coordinated actions of the participants and the varied and thoughtful programs make our voice louder our image stronger.”
