Our animal partners are respected and revered members of the Circus World family, and help tell the story of the American circus. Children of all ages enjoy watching the animals and human entertainers work harmoniously side by side. On our grounds this year will be ponies and elephants. Elephant and pony rides will also be offered at specific times throughout the day during our summer performance season. Circus World believes that positive, healthy environments are vital for working animals. The animals featured at Circus World during the summer are fed, watered, groomed, and cleaned daily, with access to the area’s best veterinary care. Each fall we offer our elephant manure to any area farmer or home gardener, and any donation they choose to make to Circus World is greatly appreciated. We’ve had it tested, and it is excellent fertilizer for gardens. ***Animals are onsite during our summer performance season only.
