There were rumors that the Shrine Circus wouldn't be back in 2017, but they are still going strong and will bring their performances back to the Adams Center this April.

Missoula Shriners and the Jordan World Circus will bring 3 rings of affordable family fun to the Adams Center on Friday April 7th with shows at 3 and 5 p.m. Saturday, April 8th shows are at 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Once again, you can enjoy death defying aerial acts, clowns, skits and animal attractions, including tigers and elephants. There will also be opportunities for kids to ride and pet different types of animals.

The Western Montana Shrine Club are once again promising that no child will have to pay to get in, and free tickets will be distributed to Missoula's public schools. Adults can purchase tickets online or at the door.
