The San Diego Circus Festival was created to support each individual artist. It offers not only a stage on which to showcase your work, but also a unique opportunity to discuss that work with industry veterans and hear their personal insights. Our goal is for every artist to come away from the festival with actionable feedback that will further their creative and professional development.
