  • Thanks to the sponsorship of The Marceline Area Chamber of Commerce Culpepper  and  Merriweather Circus, America’s Favorite Big Top Circus is coming to Marceline, Missouri on Monday, September 1st at the Old City Airport, with two scheduled performances at 5:00  and  7:30 p.m. Now in its 30th edition, C and 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 and E Special: Under the Big Top and most recently, On the Road with Circus Kids, a Nickelodeon special featured on the Nick News Program.
    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 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 and  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  and  Merriweather Circus Family and now we have a brand new tent! This is a special part of Circus Day that should not be missed.
    On circus day, our performers bring the magic of the circus to life in each 90-minute performance. This year’s lineup includes an All-Star group of performers and entertainers that include: Miss Simone and her breath taking single trapeze, Miss Paulina’s proud “Big  and  Little” prancing ponies, The Arlise Troupe on their wild and crazy unicycles,  Natalie’s American Eskimo Escapades, and back by popular demand, Miss April and her on- the-edge-of-your-seat Rola Bola. This year we have Miss Gorgia displaying flexability to the extreme and for the first time, the Wheel of Destiny  and  Tight Rope by The Los Moralitos. But, lets not forget our favorite performing Jungle Cats, Soloman, Delilah  and  Francis, presented by Mr. Trey Key, that will certainly have you on the edge of your seats!  All accompanied by original music written by the talented, Matt Margucci from Los Angeles, California. Our performers are sure to amaze, delight and  entertain  the audience members of all ages  beyond your wildest imagination. The costumes alone are certainly of Los Vegas quality.
