The big circus party comes to Monaco
From 16 January to 2 February 2020 the Principality will once again become the global circus capital.
Under the presidency of H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie, the International Circus Festival will reward the best artistes of our time with the Gold Clowns, in front of an audience who will get to admire their skills in the Fontvieille big top.
The 44th edition will pay tribute to the noblest conquest of man, the horse. Arabian horses, Friesians, Spanish and Portuguese stallions will all be presented by the team of horsemen from the Swiss national circus Knie. The greatest circus family names will be in the ring: Ivan Knie and Maicol, as well as Wioris Errani.
Acrobatics, another cornerstone of traditional circus, will also shine in the Fontvieille ring with an incredible flying plates act from China and many other international acts.

Yes to circuses with animals – important information
Having endured attacks and criticism during the 42nd International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo due to the presence of animals in the Circus, Princess Stéphanie of Monaco wishes to share the truth with the general public, which is based on the experience of competent professionals.
Created in 1974 by H.S.H. Prince Rainier III of Monaco, the International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo has become the largest and most prestigious circus event in the world. It awards the most respected prize in the world of the circus, namely the «Golden Clown» (Clown d’Or) award.
Organized and presided by H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie of Monaco, a selection of the best international acts is presented each year at the Festival which is broadcasted around the globe.
