Clowning Around in Winter Park

Clowning Around in Winter Park

In the winter, skiers and snowboarders come and try and tame the Jane. In the summer, mountain bikers come and wail on the trails. This August, the circus in coming to town, complete with a big top, a tight rope and more clowns than moguls in Winter Park.

For two weekends, August 6-8 and 13-15, the Zoppe Family Italian Circus invites you and your family into the big top for intimate performances that honor the very best in Old-World tradition.

Tickets are available with lodging reservations. For more information visit

Not that they’re encouraging children to leave home and run off with the circus, but the Zoppe Italian Circus camp is happening August 9-13. At the camp, kids ages 6-13 can learn to balance, juggle, walk the tightrope, and dress like a clown, which comes naturally for many of us here at Colorado Ski Country.
