Circus Skills

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® performers are athletes, making them the perfect “real life” role models to encourage young people to be active and physically fit. Try your hand at the same workout routines, strength-building exercises and circus skills that got the stars of The Greatest Show On Earth® physically fit!

Geography and Diversity

A world of wonders coming your way! What do you get when you take amazing animals and accomplished athletes from around the globe and have them perform in over 100 American cities over a two-year period? It’s The Greatest Show On Earth®, that’s what! Learn about the countries they come from and join in the fun!

Animal Care

It’s what we do best! Animals are an important part of our family; we make their care and well-being a top priority, 24/7. Our trainers and caretakers combine patience, trust, respect, and praise to build enduring relationships with some of nature’s funniest, largest - and most ferocious - creatures.


Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® astounds audiences across the country with daring acts that require concentration, patience, timing, dexterity and courage! The Greatest Show On Earth® also enables us to see many of the laws and principles of physics brought to life. It’s simple science, with a dash of speed, a flash of timing, and a large dose of trust!
