The 2019 season promises to be more exciting than ever with many new acts and entertainers to amaze and amuse you. Come out and enjoy a day of fun filled excitement at the circus.

The Kelly Miller Bros. Circus, founded during the Depression, is marking another milestone this year as it celebrates its 81st anniversary. Founded in 1938 by Obert Miller and his sons, Kelly and Dores, this traditional tented circus has seen the passing of the millennium and still offers the same great family entertainment it presented in its humble beginnings. While the show in 1938 was little more than the Miller family, some ponies, and a couple of monkeys, they still moved about the country, as they do today, in trucks and through the same routine each day of setting up and giving performances in a new town.

The all-new 2019 season will feature a host of international circus stars from all over the world offering the magic of the circus in each 90-minute performance. This year’s lineup includes Rolla Bolla, Hula Hoops, Balancing Trapeze, Russian Swing and so much more.

Each morning presents an altogether different kind of show as the circus lot comes to life. Circus trucks pull onto the lot in the early morning hours, stakes are driven and the giant Big Top rises into the air. The public is welcomed to watch this entire spectacle free of charge. A knowledgeable circus veteran will be on hand to explain the action and answer questions about circus life.

This season the Kelly Miller Circus will travel nearly 10,000 miles and give performances over at 150+ cities and towns as it winds across North America from February through October. The all new edition promises a more extravagant exhibition than ever, thanks to the Sponsoring of the Spencer Moose Family Center.
