Circus Vargas is Coming to San Luis Obispo!!! {Giveaway}

Circus Vargas is coming to The Madonna Inn this 4th of July weekend!  Look for the blue and gold big top this Friday, June 29 through Wednesday, July 4.  Unveiling its greatest collaboration to date, Tabares Entertainment joins forces with famed singing Ringmaster Kevin Venardos for a production of musical magnitude in its most exciting, innovative edition ever!  Acting as host and master of ceremonies, Venardos skillfully melds melody with movement, adds a bit of Broadway and a splash of razzle-dazzle for an unbelievably entertaining extravaganza.  Singing an original Circus Vargas song conceived in conjunction with talented composer and lyricist, Larry Lees, Venardos adds an additional dimension to an already amazing cast of performers and sets the stage and premise for this clever production.

Arrive thirty minutes early for the interactive pre-show where children of all ages get a chance to be center stage under the big top.  They will be guided through a crash course in circus skills with host Jon Weiss and his lovely wife Laura.


As if, his life was not exciting enough, already filled to the brim with danger, daredevil Leo Garcia decided to up the ante by launching himself from a rocket on a regular basis.  At the finale of each Circus Vargas performance Leo is ceremoniously fired from a human rocket launcher that he designed and built himself.

The 20-foot rocket launcher rises 19 feet into the air and shoots Leo approximately 75 feet in less than 4 seconds!  The blast sends him flying precariously through a labyrinth of lighting equipment and rigging, increasing the danger quotient significantly with each risky attempt.  Complete concentration and precise calculations are vital to his safety.  Only a handful of performers have dared to attempt such peril.  For the first time in Circus Vargas’ 43 year history, audience members can witness this unbelievable feat of courage by the incredible Leo Garcia under the blue and gold big top.

Discover why Circus Vargus is America’s Favorite Big Top Circus!  It’s magical….musical….memorable!

    The circus means a lot to me.
    When I was little, my mom would pick my brother and I up and whisk us away when the circus came to town. We didn’t get to see her a whole lot so it was always exciting waiting for the tents to start going up. We would go and do the whole circus experience! Cotton candy, a picture keychain, maybe even an elephant ride!
    So now that I have kids of my own, it’s a great memory of my mom as well as a fantastic tradition to pass on. <3
