NYC’s own Big Apple Circus is back in town, with the world’s most famous family of high wire walkers, the Wallendas.
Take the kids, and celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Big Apple Circus at Lincoln Center, where you can “ooh!” and “ahh!” at some of the world’s most celebrated circus acts in an intimate one-ring setting where each seat is close to the action.
Sit ringside at Damrosch Park with your eyes trained to the skies as 10-time world record holder Nik Wallenda launches into his signature daring feats. Hailed as “The King of the High Wire,” he’ll lead his Fabulous Wallendas through unforgettable aerial stunts like the seven-man pyramid.
Trapeze artists will leave you gulping and clowns will keep you laughing as this New York City cultural gem turns your holiday season.

Everybody loves the circus, and NYC’s own Big Apple Circus is one of the best in the world.
In acts that often trace their origins to the harvest festivals of 2000 years ago, this youthful and graceful company spends a swift two hours in a range of demanding performances that are a refreshing alternative to the Western tradition.
Following a six-week run on Broadway, these fearless performers bring us a new spellbinding show with astonishing athletes who defy gravity and execute breathtaking feats.
You’ll see many acts that are the inspiration for some of the feats you’ve seen in Cirque du Soleil performances.
Discount tickets are $19, half the walk-up price.
