Back in 2017, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus closed down 146 years after they opened.

I was sad, but they are finally coming back… but with some changes.

We’ve missed going to the circus so much these past few years and I’m excited to be able to actually take my grandson when they come back next year.

The Ringling Bros. Circus was purchased by Feld Entertainment and they said they would be coming back, and they’re pulling it off… with changes.

The difference… no animals!

It will still be “The Greatest Show on Earth”, just without the Elephants, tigers, and other animals… which also means no more PETA protests outside the shows.

Ticket sales had declined due to what many believe were animal rights protestors… including PETA.

I’ve actually dealt with them getting in my children’s faces and yelling awful things to all of us while we waited to enter the circus.

My favorite part of the circus is the human performers, so I am 100% ok with this!

In 2016 they removed elephants from the shows and ticket sales declined even more.

In 2023 we will be relaunching Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. You can see it’s emotional and exciting for us as a family. We really feel that Ringling Bros. has incredible relevance to today’s audience.

Feld’s chief operating officer Juliette Feld Grossman told the VenuesNow Conference in Seattle last week, according to a report published by venuesnow.com.

The relaunch of the circus minus the animals was cheered on by PETA, and again… I am totally fine with there not being animals.

I just wish PETA would tone themselves down a bit, especially in front of children.

The exciting announcement sends a powerful message to the entire industry, something that PETA’s been saying for decades: Cruelty doesn’t belong in the circus or in any other form of entertainment.

PETA said in a statement.

The Ringling Bros. Circus is currently holding auditions all across the world and once people are chosen they will start rehearsals.

The Ringling Bros. Circus will start a 50-city tour in North America starting in September of 2023!

Will you still go to the circus when they relaunch without the elephants, tigers, lions, or other animals?
