Montréal being ground zero for all things circus it only makes sense this spectacular city would produce what is widely considered the most prestigious circus festival in the world… Montréal Complètement Cirque!

Montréal Complètement Cirque…or as we say here in the states the Montreal Circus Festival just celebrated their 5th year and did it grand style.

Montréal Complètement Cirque

The 5th edition of Montréal Complètement Cirque drew over 185,000 people to this magnificent city on the St. Lawrence River where French is the first language and circus is serious business and serious fun.

Over 400 hundred artists from dozens of circus companies representing Canada, Europe and for the FIRST TIME EVER the UNITED STATES were honored with an invitation.

Midnight Circus made circus history by being the first (and to date only!) American Circus Company ever invited to Montréal Complètement Cirque!

We were honored, excited, humbled and a bit nervous to be the first Americans to play the festival.

Would the international audience come out to see us?

Would they like what we do?

Would the press dig our unpretentious style?

…Yes…Yes and Yes! Merci Montreal!
