Event Details

P.T. Barnum may be the biggest name, but he was only a small part of the story of the circus. Storyteller William Pack takes you on a fantastical journey through the history of the Circus, from Phil Astley's creation of the modern circus in 1768 to Dan Rice, "the most famous man you've never heard of," to the incredible feud between Barnum and the Ringling Brothers.  You'll hear stories of triumph, disaster, and the grand adventure of travelling. Experience the story of those who gave their lives to show and became legends in the process.

Registration is required.
