Come one, come all--the circus is coming to Petaluma! Join the Zoppè Family Circus for this family-friendly, unique event in the heart of Sonoma County. The Zoppè Family Circus welcomes guests into the intimate 500 seat tent for a one-ring circus that honors the best history of the Old-World Italian tradition. Starring Nino the clown, the circus is propelled by a central story (as opposed to individual acts) that feature acrobatic feats, equestrian showmanship, canine capers, clowning, and plenty of audience participation. Giovanni Zoppè, the sixth-generation circus performer who plays Nino, says the show aims higher than what passes for circuses these days. "We try to touch every emotion during the show," he says. "They'll laugh, they'll cry, and they'll feel for the characters. It's more of an event than a show." The Zoppè Family Circus emerged from humble beginnings more than 160 years ago to become one of the legendary circuses in all of Europe. This is one of the oldest family circuses in the United States, and they are bringing their incredible show here--to the beautiful North Bay. Make sure to grab your ticket soon, as they are limited and this tent is sure to fill up quickly!
