Presented by Canberra’s own Warehouse Circus, Circus for Life Festival is a biannual celebration of the diversity and richness that Circus brings to the everyday lives of Australians. From exceptional live performance, to audience participation and individual skills development, circus brings joy; uniquely showcasing itself as an intensely sophisticated art form offering social connection, physical fitness and mental health benefits for participants and artists alike.


The Circus for Life Festival professional program is running between the 29th of September and the 8th of October at the Street and will feature three diverse circus productions – Papillon, Polarity and Dinosaur Time Machine.


The Circus for Life Festival community program is a 3-day festival program of mercurial pop-up performances designed to surprise, delight and engage the public in a veritable circus feast, across the grounds of Floriade from the 1st to the 3rd of October.
