There are no wild or exotic animals performing in Big Apple Circus. The only animals included in our show are our beloved rescue dogs and horses/ponies, that are cared for by our certified horse and dog trainer Jenny Vidbel. Additionally, Big Apple Circus complies with all federal, state, and local regulations, in addition to our own stringent animal care standards. The safety of all animals and humans working and performing with the Big Apple Circus is paramount.
All ages are welcome!
