Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus - DC show

The Verizon Center

601 F St NW

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Built To Amaze!, is an extraordinarily engineered circus experience where Children Of All Ages® find out what it takes to build The Greatest Show On Earth®. The foundation is set and the rising anticipation of high-energy, high-jinx and hilarity is ready to be transported by colorful circus machinery and unleashed from shipping crates right before the audience’s eyes.

Built to Amaze! performs at two arenas in the Washington, D.C. area ��" the Verizon Center in the District from March 20 ��" 23 and the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va. from April 9 ��" 20. Built to Amaze! will also perform at the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Md. from March 26 ��" April 6.

Andre McClain, Ringmaster and America’s favorite cowboy accompanied by his horse Comanche, takes the Ringling Bros.® reins and, leads his Built To Amaze! funny and mischievous super circus supervisors, to construct The Greatest Show On Earth. A fantastic design with more than 110 of the world’s best performers representing 17 countries along with 95 exotic and domestic animals will be assembled, creating never-before-seen heart pounding performances.

Ringling Bros. is thrilled to introduce nine-time international award-winning comedic animal presenting duo Alex and Irina Emelin of Russia. New to Ringling Bros. is the Tower Tumblers, a troupe of competitive aerial athletes from the Ukraine who launch themselves from trampolines to scale, repel and pass through a three-story high translucent tower. Ringling Bros. brings a spirited and fiery competition of basketball with the next generation of whirling unicyclists, the legendary King Charles Troupe hailing from New York City. 

Ringling Bros. Presents Built To Amaze! includes the All-Access Preshow®  beginning an hour before show time FREE to all ticket holders. The Pre-show allows audience members to meet and take photos with performers, try on circus costumes, learn circus skills and have the chance to win a masterpiece painting by one of the Ringling Bros. artistic Asian elephants.
