Open-Air Circus Spectacle and Kids’ Circus Parcours

Various Locations

On the weekend of the main YOUNG STAGE circus festival, the Open-Air Circus Spectacle will also present 30 young, creative, and innovative circus shows in outdoor spaces at Barfüsserplatz and Kaserne Basel that will appeal to young and old alike. Some of the artists are former participants of the YOUNG STAGE festival. They come not only from neighboring countries, but also from countries like Argentina and Guatemala. A fascinating spectacle is guaranteed! For the full program at each location, with a total of more than 30 performances, see (Kaserne) and (Barfüsserplatz).
Children who are inspired and intrigued by watching the performances can also try their hands (and feet) at being acrobats themselves on these two days. At the Circus Parcours, they can try out various circus disciplines, including juggling, diabolo, swing, hula hoop, balance, ladder acrobatics, magic, and fakir. All activities will be guided by professionals!
Surrounding restaurants, food trucks, coffee mobiles, and beverage stands make a visit to the Open-Air Circus Spectacle also a culinary delight. Treat yourself to a delicious espresso, a cold ice cream or a refreshing beer and marvel at the spectacular performances of the artists. The show, or individual acts, may be cancelled in the event of very bad weather.
Admission is free but there will be a collection at both locations. You can now also support the open-air shows via TWINT!
