The Greatest Show about Earth




June 8th - 12th, 2022

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!

Land Acknowledgment

We are on Treaty 1 land, the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, the birthplace of the Red River Métis, and the meeting place of the Dakota, Ininíwak, Ithiniwak, Denesułine, Anishininiwak, Inuit, and Nakota.


We acknowledge that our drinking water in the City of Winnipeg is sourced from Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, a community who from 1997 until just months ago lived under a boil water advisory, while Winnipeggers used this resource from their land with little thanks and no reciprocity.  


Green Kids is working to educate and inspire future generations of environmentalists, while taking our cues from Indigenous water and land protectors, the original environmentalists on this land.  


As we present Bike and Circuses in Whittier and Lagimodière-Gaboury Parks, we are humbled not only by their beauty, but also by their historical significance. Lagimodière-Gaboury Park is the birthplace of Métis leader Louis Riel, founder of Manitoba and leader of the Red River Resistance and the North-West Rebellion. We are grateful to be sharing our production with Winnipeggers in this special place. A portion of the proceeds from Bike and Circuses will be donated to Métis grassroots organisation, Red River Echoes, a collective of Métis people committed to reclaiming their sovereignty, lands, culture, and kinships in Red River and across their Homeland. 


As we learn and grow, this Land Acknowledgement will too.
