Circus Parade

The Circus Train Is Rolling Into Town!

Annual Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Parade
Delights Fans Young and Old on Wednesday, September 22nd

Salt Lake City, Utah – For 140 Years, it’s one thing you can always count on…the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Circus Parade & Elephant Walk. Sometime during the night on September 21, a mile-long sixty one car train will arrive into the city, gleaming by the light of the moon. The pre-dawn silence will be broken by the chatter of 130 performers, speaking 15 different languages and the mystical sounds of 100,000 pounds of Asian elephants, Bengal & Siberian tigers, horses, ponies, llamas, Pygmy and Nubian goat, and a rare Watusi – all joining forces with human performers from the four corners of the world as they disembark in Salt Lake City. The elephants will raise their trunks and remember the town they’re in. Man and beast will work to get ready for that grandest of traditions, “The Great Circus Parade.”

At noon on Wednesday, September 22nd the sirens of the Salt Lake City motorcycle police will open the show, as the parade begins at 200 South Rio Grande Street and heads north up through the center of the Gateway Mall, ending at 50 North Rio Grande Street.

Children will line the streets as they have for generations, eyes gleaming with anticipation, parent’s hearts filled with joy for a peek at the newest Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® circus extravaganza, Barnum’s FUNundrum!SM. This monumental, once in a lifetime event celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of the legendary P.T. Barnum, the Greatest Showman on Earth!

Children of all ages and families are welcomed to gather together to celebrate the Grand Parade of The Greatest Show on Earth. Best viewing will be from the either side of the Rio Grande Street up through the Gateway Mall. Come early for a great seat and be sure to visit local stores at the Gateway Mall to receive your FREE Ringling Bros. clown nose (while supplies last).

Produced by Feld Entertainment, Barnum’s FUNundrum! will be playing in Salt Lake City at the Energy Solutions Arena from September 22–26.
