at Whittier Park

Ride away with the Circus!

 

Green Kids Inc. is proud to present

Bike and Circuses

 

We invite you to ride, walk or roll your way through a circus of wonders. Join us June 8-12 at Whittier Park for an outdoor family-friendly event that celebrates our connection to the Earth.

 

Featuring a cast of 16 performers, this show takes audiences on a journey through nature where they will encounter acrobats, dancers, musicians, puppets, poetry, magic and more!

Before and after the show audiences are invited to enjoy our interactive lobby, featuring family activities, a bike & pedestrian safety station, a compost booth and more! 

We are proud to declare that Bike and Circuses is a 100% carbon neutral event!  This means that we are choosing eco-friendly materials and transportation while crafting the show. Almost all set, costumes and props will be discarded or second-hand items, and our travel will be by foot, bike or transit as much as possible. We will also do a comprehensive waste audit, while offsetting our minimal vehicle travel (audience, performers, vendors and volunteers) and purchases. No other theatre event in Winnipeg has ever done this!
