Neighborhood Tour 2016 to perform free-of-charge in City Heights, Chollas View, North Park - and San Diego International Airport

Last year marked the return of Fern Street Circus to San Diego neighborhoods, with our 25th Anniversary Neighborhood Tour. In 2016, we are visiting more Mid-City parks - and bringing the first full circus performance to San Diego International Airport.

The show, a response to a year-long residency at the Airport, combines a core of 10 professional circus and musical artists, with 25 students from the After-School Circus Program in City Heights. The show is bilingual; the multi-generational cast ranges in age from 6 to 65. An all-ages show.

Help Bring Circus to Neighborhood Parks!
Fern Street's crowd sourcing campaign in support of Neighborhood Tour 2016 recently went live on Fundly.

At any level of support, you help bring the magic of live circus to neighborhoods. We serve people who would not otherwise have access to quality arts programs. And this in neighborhoods which usually do not get professional entertainment.

Our goal: $2,500 to help support Tour production. We are already more than 25% of the way to meeting the goal. Won't you join us in our joyous pursuit?

Benefits include tickets to Cirque du Soleil's show, TORUK at Valley View Casino Center (the Sports Arena) on November 23rd.

Here's how you can join us:
Airport Residency Draws World-Wide Attention

Fern Street Circus is San Diego International Airport's first-ever Performing Arts Residency for all of 2016. Since April, we have been doing live performance in both terminals, pre- and post-security. It's a blast - for surprised travelers and workers, and for artists.

Our new show, The Hectic & The Still, is a response to being around the Airport since early 2016: a day in the life of the mythical Fern Street International Airport. The show premieres in the Neighborhood Tour 2016 with a special performance in Terminal 2.
