Circus Vargas California in San Luis Obispo

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Tuesday, July 6, 2021 Under: Circus Vargas
I was happy to hear that Circus Vargas debuted in San Luis Obispo this summer and we got the chance to watch a performance the day before Independence Day at the beautiful Madonna Inn property.

It was a sunny day and we caught the 4pm showing. Parking right by the circus tent was $10 cash, which we gladly paid instead of parking far away. I had an elderly family member with us and this makes a huge difference for him who has bad knees.

This was not our very first Circus Vargas show. We went to one 2 years ago and I have to say that this 2021 performance is much more organized and the sound is much better and cleaner. No irritating bass rattling!

I also enjoyed the storytelling of this year's performance as well. I think the grandparents in our family related to it well and I was so glad they enjoyed the circus with us. Best of all, they were so relieved to hear that there are no more live animals at the circus as they felt that was cruel when they had gone when they were much younger.

Here are the video clips that I recorded while I was there. These are just a bit of what we saw and does not do justice to the enormous talent and creativity the Circus Vargas team put together.

If you did not catch a Circus Vargas performance in San Luis Obispo, have no fear as they are going to be in Santa Barbara next from July 9 - 19 and moving south. Check out the Circus Vargas website for their schedule.
