A Show You’ll Never Forget
“The authentic wonder and amazement my six year old daughter and I shared the day we saw Kaleidoscope started when we were still on the bridge and spied, from our car, the gorgeous spires of the circus tent. I never before thought of Treasure Island as a magical Never-Neverland -- but with circus, anything is possible, and most truly that is what the cast of Circus Bella has created, right in the middle of the Bay. Thank you Circus Bella, for your lessons in fearlessness, beauty, and generosity. We can’t wait to come back!” - Laura Ricci
We will be back this December 2019 with an all new production that you do not want to miss! Stay tuned for updates and Announcements.
An Awe-Inspiring Atmosphere
We welcome you to take a seat in the beautiful Big Top Tent - the only one of its kind in the Bay Area.
We are excited to showcase props and set dressing from LA Circus, whose work dazzled audiences in the motion picture Water for Elephants, The Greatest Showman and more.
From the moment you arrive, let us transport you to a world of magic, delight and splendor.
Acclaimed Performers from Around the World
Some of the Bay Area’s most exciting circus talents will be joined by an international cast of superlative circus artists, with acts performed to original music written by Rob Reich and performed by a live 6-piece band! And in keeping with the renowned Pickle Family Circus tradition, no animals appear in our show.
