About Us

Since 1933

Since 1933, the Hadi Shrine Circus has dazzled both young and old from its home in Evansville, Indiana. The Hadi Temple is proud of the show’s long history, with third and fourth generation families coming to see the circus. Our Circus provides good, wholesome entertainment for a reasonable price, and it has consistently been one of the greatest shows on Earth for almost a century.

2019 marks the eighth production at the Ford Center after 56 years at Roberts Stadium. During its incredible run, the Hadi Shrine Circus has changed with the times, evolving from a traditional production to a flashier style of show, especially over the last few years. With classic acts like jugglers, lion tamers, acrobats, and clowns, our circus pairs traditional circus fun with dazzling lighting, music, special effects, and action to keep you on the edge of your seat.

In order to keep the production fresh, the Hadi Shrine Circus contracts individual performers rather than signing on a full production every year. This allows for unique presentations and exceptional variety each year, with the opportunity to grow and cultivate new ideas. Of course, the success of any great circus is dependent on the animals. All of the animals are treated like family, with top-quality care including annual check-ups and vaccinations. In addition, some of the dogs that perform during the show were rescued from shelters.

This year’s Hadi Shrine Circus required 11 months of planning and over 1,000 people working together to create something truly special. So be sure to get your tickets early – and bring your family to the show 1-hour early for the opportunity for kids to ride the elephants, ponies, and camels.

We’ll see you at the Circus!
