Navy Pier Events: The Circus is Coming to Town!


Navy Pier Events: The Circus is Coming to Town!

Remember the good ol’ days when the highlight of your year was when the local traveling circus visited your town or city? The smells of candy, junk food and excitement were mingled with the crowd’s anticipation of the spectacles to come. Well if you’re looking to relive those glorious childhood memories, look no further.  The Windy City Circus is debuting at Chicago’s Navy Pier from February 17th – 26th and is certain to entertain visitors of all ages. Located just 20 minutes from our Chicago Hillside Hotel, Navy Pier is a great place to visit with the whole family and often has great Navy Pier events like this one.

However, this isn’t just a Navy Pier event for those who want to see some amazing feats of skill. The Windy City Circus describes itself as, “A Circus with a Purpose,” and is dedicated to celebrating the 175th birthday of Chicago with a circus that, “envelops the exciting history of Chicago in a sensational circus scenario.” With the goal of raising funds for needy and disabled children in the Chicago area, the circus will share 80% of the net ticket sale proceeds with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and the Special Olympics Chicago.

Some of the spectacular circus acts to be expected at this Navy Pier event include:

  • Juggling with Vladik
  • The Wheel of Destiny
  • Aerial Rola Bola displays
  • Horse shows
  • Acrobatic hand balancing acts
  • Death-defying sky master sway pole performances


It’s not often that fun Navy Pier events with such  commendable purposes comes to town, and we highly recommend taking advantage of this great opportunity to help out those less fortunate. If you’re in town during February with family or friends, why not stop by and share some support while enjoying the great acts this event has to offer.
