From February 25th-29th, around 30,000 spectators will gather at the Gran Carpa Recinto Ferial de Figueres for the 5th edition of the International Circus Festival. Following the success of its first four editions, this five-day event will feature an impressive 82 acts from 14 different countries. With all participating artists competing to win a series of awards, acrobatics, air strips, clowns, contortion, tight rope, hula hoop and unicycle acts are just a number of featured disciplines in this year’s programme. After having been scored by a panel of judges during the first four days, the festival will culminate in the ‘Gold Show’ on February 29th, in which a number of selected artists perform their winning routines for the final time in a bid to win the top prizes.
As well as shows, there are a number of other activities for audience members to get involved with, including a book collection, exhibitions and a collection fair.
Tickets are available from €10. More information here.
