Venardos Circus Performs for First Time in Houston Area

Venardos Circus (veh-NARR-dos), a Broadway-style animal-free circus, is thrilled to perform for the first time in the greater Houston area at Dry Creek Social Club, located at 3333 Farm to Market 359 in Richmond. There will be 16 shows over two weeks in the intimate red-and-white striped tent, March 18th to 29th. This is Venardos Circus’ first stop in a multi-week tour through Texas.

Guests can expect to be transported back in time to the center ring of a centuries-old tradition, but one that has been reinvented for the next generation. An amazing assortment of performers includes a new cast featuring Guinness World Record holder Brad; juggling and sword-walking Derileisy Ramos; aerialists Manuel and Ilenay Acosta; duo rola bola and duo straps Chase Culp; comedy and Rachel Bell; foot juggling and roman rings. “Broadway” Brian Pollock, Flea Circus Ringleader, also will be returning with some amazing new content for the pre-show hour.

Venardos Circus proudly features its own custom-made big-top, a classic red-and-white striped tent, with an intimate feel and limited seating. The circus performers are also the crew in this traveling tour who are completely self-contained, much like the original circus tradition.

General Admission tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for youth under age 12. Babies in arms are free with a paying adult (24 months and younger). Premium Reserved seating is from $35 to $45. Tickets available at
