The Kelly Miller Bros. Circus, founded during the Depression, is marking another milestone this year as it celebrates its 80th anniversary. Founded in 1938 by Obert Miller and his sons, Kelly and Dores, this traditional tented circus has seen the passing of the millennium and still offers the same great family entertainment it presented in its humble beginnings. While the show in 1938 was little more than the Miller family, some ponies, and a couple of monkeys, they still moved about the country, as they do today, in trucks and went through the same routine each day of setting up and giving performances in a new town.
The all-new 2018 season will feature a host of international circus stars from all over the world. 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: Rolla Bolla, Hula Hoops, Quick Change, Russian Swing and so much more. Each morning the public gets an altogether different kind of show as the circus lot comes to life. Circus trucks pull onto the lot in the early morning hours, stakes are driven and the giant Big Top rises into the air. Best of all, the public is welcomed to watch this entire spectacle free of charge. A knowledgeable circus veteran will be on hand to explain the action and answer questions about circus life.
This season the Kelly Miller Circus Bros. Circus will travel nearly 10,000 miles and give performances over 150+ cities and towns as it winds across North America from April through October. The all new edition promises a more and extravagant exhibition than ever.
