Taking place from 1806 to present times, this is a 90-minute historical romp of how circus got its start in the Hudson Valley and influenced the growth of America culturally and politically. Audiences young and old will thrill to acts created just for this cycle of shows.

The art of a traveling troupe combined with the science of putting up and tearing down a big top is an age-old tradition in Europe and America. It continues to be a robust industry in Europe, but here in America, it is a dying art form. This is why it is important for the public to support an effort, like ours, to continue, grow and expand the art. Until the early 1900’s, the American Circus was the third largest industry in America. With the advent of radio and tv, then video and now the Internet, attending a live event has waned. But, as my grandmother used to say, if you live long enough everything comes back again. The circus, in all its splendor, glory, and hard labor, is back to stay with Circus Ta – Da!

Come One, Come All! We set up the tent on Aug. 17th starting at 8am. If you would like to join in and be a roustabout for a day, we’ll keep you fed and hydrated and give you a sledgehammer to swing. You will be able to say by the end of the day that you participated in an ancient tradition, right here in your own backyard!
