For the 10th year in a row the Zoppé Family Circus will make a return engagement to Tucson, setting up in the big lot on Linda Ave. in the Mercado District to present 31 individual performances between January 15 and January 31. The Zoppé Family Circus is a much-loved and much- anticipated annual event in Tucson, playing to packed houses and wowing kids and adults alike with their Old-World charm and traditions that date back to their founding in Italy in 1842.
This year’s run reflects the new and current reality of 2020/21, and has been reborn at the Zoppé Family Circus Drive-In. Instead of sitting under the big-top tent, the 2021 circus is a Drive-In event, with families enjoying the circus from the safety of their own vehicles while the performers can be seen on an elevated stage and circus ring, while also being displayed live on large LED screens. Sound will be broadcast through car stereos, like a traditional Drive-In Theater on FM radio, with minimal sound coming from the stage.
