Indiana connection to the circus industry dates back to the late 1800s, when businessmen from a number of Indiana cities assembled traveling “mud shows” featuring exotic animals, performers, clowns and human oddities.

By the early 1900s, the circus industry had grown – becoming the most popular form of entertainment in the United States. A number of the nations’ premier shows set up winter quarters in Indiana, establishing a lasting link between the circus and the Hoosier State.

Free admission. Concession and activity tickets are 50 cents each.
