Dear Public, dear friends of the Festival
The Organizing Committee of the International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo, under the Presidency of H.S.H. Princesse Stéphanie, announces the postponement of the 45th Edition of the Circus Festival to 20th to 30th of January 2022, as well as the changing of the dates for the 10th Competition of young circus-artists “New Generation” to February 5th and 6th 2022.
In view of the sanitary and health conditions around Covid 19 this decision has been taken in accordance with the Government of Monaco and also due to the fact that the biggest Circus-Event in the world presents more than 200 artists from over 20 countries and receives a very international public.
We sincerely regret this decision, but in view of the responsibility towards the health and security of everybody we certainly may count on your understanding.
Let us meet again in January and February 2022 in Monte-Carlo around the most famous Circus-ring in the world.
Take care, stay healthy and safe!
Long live the Circus!
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.
