AYCO organizes three kinds of events: a biennial national festival, regional festivals, and young artist showcases!
The national festival happens every two years and is always in a new and exciting location. The next national festival will be hosted by the Trenton Circus Squad in Trenton, New Jersey. We also host regional festivals and produce showcases to provide young performers with the opportunity to share their talents at big circus events nationwide.
Biennial National American Youth Circus Festival!
The 2017 American Youth Circus National Festival will be held from August 16th-20th at the Trenton Circus Squad’s space in Trenton, NJ.
Regional festivals are one day events filled to the brim with workshops and closing with a youth showcase. They are hosted by our member organizations and are a great way to learn from different coaches, perform for your peers, and meet circus youth from your region! Registration opens 6-8 weeks prior to the event.
