COMING UP THIS WEEKEND
The hills of Chantilly Farm will come alive this weekend with the captivating sights and sounds of Cirque du Floyd...

This Friday and Saturday, local and regional performance artists will converge at Chantilly Farm for the second annual Cirque du Floyd. Two days of excitement, wonder, and intrigue in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains!

From New York to North Carolina, we’re showcasing some of the best names in regional circus arts, and giving you a chance to try your hand at it as well with expanded workshops.

The circus is the perfect place for everyone, and we invite you to explore all things intriguing and delightful that create this unique art form! Circus arts are making a comeback around the world, as modern cirque elements marry with more traditional circus arts.

We’re embracing the old with the new at Cirque du Floyd, celebrating and sharing the history and tradition of the old circus, while exposing you to the dazzling and marvelous realms of the new!

Last year featured a wide variety of unique performance artists from around the region that included magicians, jugglers, clowns, contortionists, acrobats, fire dancers, hoopers, living statues, interactive aerial storytelling acts, local musicians and more. This year's production will be even more exciting and your ticket includes all Friday night programming as well!

You won’t want to miss this chance to be dazzled and amazed by all the things Cirque du Floyd 2018 has to offer.

Crafts, local food, beer and wine lounge, sideshow stage and roaming performances will be back, along with more outdoor fun and expanded workshops.

Plan on camping with us for the weekend so you can really let your hair down and experience the ageless fun of Cirque du Floyd.
