After nearly seven years of dormancy, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus returns to life on the road next month.
Irvin Feld purchased the circus from the Ringling family in 1967. That was the spark that formed Feld Entertainment, whose holdings also include Disney on Ice, Monster Jam and the Jurassic World Live Tour. Feld’s son Kenneth and Kenneth’s three daughters run the family business now, which maintains a staunch commitment to family-oriented entertainment.
Feld spent a day in Bloomington-Normal to address the Circus Historical Society, which brought its annual conference to the Twin Cities for the first time in more than a decade.
