2018 Wittenberg Circus!
August 15, 2018
America’s Favorite Old-Fashioned Big Top Circus is Coming to Town!
Thanks to the sponsorship of the Wittenberg Area Chamber, Culpepper & Merriweather Circus, America’s Favorite Big Top Circus is coming to Wittenberg, WI on Wednesday, August 15th, 2018 to the Washington Park located on Webb St. & Park St.
Now in its 33rd edition, C&M Circus has become internationally known for quality family entertainment. This authentic One-Ring, Big Top Circus has been featured on National Geographic’s Explorer TV series, Entertainment Tonight, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, Arizona Highways Magazine.
It has also been featured on the A&E Special: Under the Big Top and most recently, On the Road with Circus Kids, a Nickelodeon special featured on the Nick News Program.
We are a tented, one-ring circus. No seat is further than 40 feet away from the ring, so you don’t have to worry about missing any of the action! We do two shows a day, everyday, for 32 weeks out of each year. Our season starts in mid-March and runs through October.
Bring your friends and family out circus morning to watch as a familiar place in your town is transformed into a bustling Circus City. Activity swirls around the grounds as animals are unloaded, the Big Top is erected, and rigging is prepared for performances later in the day.
Enjoy the magic and tradition of the American Circus with your family and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m. come watch the raising of the Big Top, then stay for the FREE Tour. This presentation offers a unique face-to face opportunity for families, schools, and interested community members to meet and learn all about the Culpepper & Merriweather Circus family and includes a walking tour of the circus grounds.
Learn interesting facts about our performers, the history of our show and the different species of animals in our Circus Family. In this presentation we will also address topics such as hygiene, grooming and the veterinary care all of our animals receive.
In recent years the Tent Raising and Morning Tour has become a popular program for families and interested community members. It is presented in a way everyone, young and old can learn many interesting facts about the Culpepper & Merriweather Circus Family.
This is a special part of Circus Day that should not be missed!
