The first annual San Diego Circus Festival, hosted by San Diego Circus Center and produced by Jean-Luc Martin, was a three day event in San Diego, CA illuminated by different levels of circus artistry in aerial, floor, jeu, and dance. Acts in those categories were submitted through the Festival website, selected, and divided up into three evening productions : Professional, Emerging, and Youth. Preceding each production of talent was a Cirque-Off where contestants competed against each other through improvisation to live taiko drums.
By exposing nationwide, hand-selected talent to the community, San Diego Circus Festival became a pathway for youth and emerging artists to excel as well as an avenue for established professionals to perform. The Festival gave talent an opportunity to present their work while also providing education through workshops held by professionals in the industry.
