----

The duty of a circus festival is to promote the circus art. It is a place where circus directors, producers and professionals meet up to see what new acts are on the market. Every two years Budapest becomes the Capital of the circus world. The quality of their show makes the Budapest Circus Festival one of the most prestigious circus festivals in Europe. I am excited to see what surprises the show will have for us and I am sure the audience will love it to.

Long live the Budapest Circus Festival.

Eugene Chaplin

President of the Jury
