The Festival: A family tradition

1974

1st Festival International du Cirque de Monte-Carlo

In 1974, Prince Rainier III of Monaco, who was passionate about circus, decided to create a Festival to help and support traditional circus and circus families: the 1st Festival International du Cirque de Monte-Carlo was born!

Prince Rainier III hands over the 1st Gold Clown of the Festival
to the unforgettable Charlie Rivel.

and her children Louis, Pauline and Camille.

2005

H.S.H Princess Stéphanie became the President of Festival

The love of circus is transmitted from father to daughter, and Princess Stéphanie became the President of the largest circus festival in the world in 2005!

2012

Creation of New Generation

The tradition carries on and in 2012 H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie and her daughter Pauline Ducruet decide to create New Generation, a Festival for young artistes. Pauline has become the President of the International Jury.

Centenary of Prince Rainier III & 50 years of the Festival

As part of the Commemoration of the centenary of Prince Rainier III, presided over by H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie, a unique exhibition entitled “The Prince at the Heart of the Circus” was organised.

 

The Festival celebrated its 50th anniversary with its 46th edition (1974-2024) and closed the Centenary Celebrations of Prince Rainier III (1923-2023), Founder of the Festival.

This exceptional event included a grand Circus Parade in the city and an Open Air Circus Show on the Place du Palais Princier. A unique and moving moment in the Festival’s history!
