About the Budapest Circus Festival

The 13th Budapest Circus Festival will be held between the 8th and 13th of January 2020!


One of the most prominent events of the circus art in the world

Great talents from all over the world!

The most excellent representatives of the profession, circus directors, artist managers in one place


The first Budapest Circus Festival was held in 1996. As a result of the concept and casting of the Hungarian professionals, the Budapest Circus Festival soon proved to be equal quality to the greatest festivals of the circus world: in addition to Monte Carlo, Latina and Moscow Budapest also has become an important meeting point for the circus art.

Respect and Tribute to the Ancestors!

It is the human will believing in the infinity of the human capacity inherited from generations to generation that has been able to save or even renew and update the circus art for hundreds of years. The reason of the launch of the International Circus Festival in Budapest twenty-two  years ago was the decision, the will and the trust in this art of a group of professionals. I raise my hat to the photos of the ancestors thanking for the commitment of all former heads, directors, artists and supporters devoted to the circus art. The respect of the past and the maintenance of our ancestors' excellence can only help us to renew, re-interpret and update the miracle called circus art.
