Bellingham's Own Circus

Did you know that Bellingham has its own circus. Yes it's true. There are no animals but there are lots of jugglers, acrobats, stilt-walkers, clowns, aerialists, multimedia theatricalists (now that's a mouthful) and lots more.

The Bellingham Circus Guild is a collection of professional and amateur hobby Circus artists. Their mission is "to assist and support the circus arts community of Whatcom County and to promote Circus arts in the community at large and to radically proliferate great delight at every opportunity."
They put on shows quite often. They do a monthly show called Vaudevillngham, the Bellingham Circus Guild’s Monthly Uncensored Variety Show Fundraiser which happens the The 15th of every month. They invite everyone to participate, the only rule is no performer may repeat the same act, ever at any Vaudevillingham show. The show is uncensored! So there is no pre-screening of acts but hurtful or discriminatory acts are discouraged. It's not a "for kids" circus show. That said, many people bring their kids, especially to the early 8pm show.

It’s a Variety Show! Anything goes, from dance, aerial, comedy, magic, theater, juggling, improv, burlesque, music and more!
