“We’re thrilled to present this show for the third year in a row. It is pure unbridled (adult) fun.  Everyone leaves with a smile on their face. To add to the excitement, the Thursday night show will feature a local performer from the Cin City Burlesque, Ginger Snapps.”

The Beggar’s Carnivale, described as “Cirque du Soleil on a whiskey bender”, is a variety show combining elements of traditional circus arts, gypsy folk, and rock n’ roll. This fast paced, non-stop spectacle includes several acts linked together by a series of silent film-esque interludes and this year will feature live music from their house band The Royal We as well as music mixed on the spot by the show’s personal DJ. show
