Featuring international performers from more than countries set to dazzle Belton!Enchanting elephants, tigers, and acrobats and more.
This year’s Shrine Circus is all new—including an original new score, new costumes, and feats, many never attempted in the US previously.

George Carden, the founder of America’s Original Three Ring Circus, said this about the upcoming shows, “Every year, we scour the world to find the best performances. We’re bringing a big show, the biggest we’ve ever put together. The spirit of the circus is to top anything and everything, each year.”

Slated to appear include Broadway Bo, the World’s Largest Performing Elephant. Trained by Larry Carden. In a jaunty top hat, see this incredible 5 ton pachyderm perform feats of precision and perfection. The circus also features tigers, performing in the steel cage as their trainer cues them to action. Dancing elephants such as Bo, perform precision feats with Gagnam style dancers.

The animals aren't the only ones taking center ring. Guiming Meng, guest from China entertains with a unique balancing act.  Plus, Human Cannonball. world record holder, David Smith, Jr. is blasted from a barrel live during the show.
