Yes to circus with animals
Dear friends of the Festival and the traditional circus,
the presentation of animals belongs to the modern circus for 250 years.
Because of a current statement of the French Minister, Mrs. Barbara Pompili and her project to ban animals in the circus, your support is needed more than ever!
We need you and your voice so that the circus with animals can continue to bring joy and happiness to children of all ages. In France and everywhere else in the world!
We invite you to sign our petition for the circus with animals.
Thank you in advance for your support.

Circus Ambassador, István Újhelyi, Member of the European Parliament in collaboration with the Fédération Mondiale du Cirque and the European Circus Association produced this video to express support and keep alive the positive mood in the World Circus Community, on the actual World Circus Day, albeit the real celebrations had to be postponed for better times, once the pandemic is over and life will turn back to normal.
We greet each other today with the firm believe that the show will go on.
