Coming to Kansas for the First Time!

Tickets On Sale Now!

(Andover, KS) – It’s time to celebrate the arrival of Venardos Circus (veh-NARR-dos), a Broadway-style animal-free circus, coming to Kansas for the first time ever! The show will be held at Marietta Farms, 1600 E US-54, Andover, KS 67002 with its 10th Anniversary edition from April 11 – 21, 2024. The awe-inspiring Venardos Circus cast will celebrate a Decade of Dreams under the big top with a magical, exhilarating, and all-new experience for guests. The show will feature music from Venardos Circus Tours throughout the years but with fresh acts and a reimagined showcase. The 2024 Venardos Circus is traveling with a new custom-crafted, Italian-made red-and-white striped tent that offers expansive seating for an immersive experience and higher views where artists fly high. The show travels approximately 42 weeks of the year but this will be a first time play for Kansas.

“This is a special season for us as we celebrate the many dreams realized by The Little Circus That Could,” said Ringmaster and Producer, Kevin Venardos. “For those that have supported us from the beginning or others who will see us for the first time our goal is always to show you what’s possible when you live your dreams, and we promise you A Grand Ol’ Time. We’re excited to meet the people of Kansas and introduce you to the special magic Venardos Circus has to offer.”

Guests can expect a purely magical experience from the moment they enter the tent and travel back in time to the center ring of a centuries-old tradition, but one that has been masterfully reinvented for a new generation. Show schedule will be as follows:
