International Circus Festival Budapest, 10 – 15 January
The art of circus has been kept alive for centuries, thanks to those people who believed that the human performance has no limit, and they managed to maintain this conception for generations.

From the organisers: 

Twenty-five years ago a group of professionals led by István Kristóf created the Budapest International Circus Festival.

We have high respect for our ancestors, and we would like to thank all the former leaders, circus directors, artists and supporters dedicated to circus arts for their work and commitment!

We can only renew, refresh and reinterpret this miracle,what we call circus art, with the respect for the past and preservation of the merits of our ancestors.

11 January 2024 is a celebration of circus performing arts and circus science, when we open our major international exhibition of circus history in the framework of the XV Budapest International Circus Festival.

For the first time, relics of Hungarian performers and circus dynasties, outstanding works of circus art and film, and the finest collectors, collections and museums of international circus heritage from abroad will be on display together.

The visible wonders of the circus world are accompanied by a wealth of hands-on experiences: a 100-year-old carousel, museum games, virtual tightrope walking and group circus education, so that anyone can discover their potential as a hidden artist - or circus museologist.
