Festival Circolo is located in the city centre of Tilburg.

From 16 to 20 October 2019, Circolo, the largest circus festival in the Netherlands, will take place in the heart of Tilburg. Festival Circolo shows the circus of the future. Leading, accessible and contrary. A unique mix of (inter)national top performances and stimulating experiments on the cutting edge of acrobatics, theatre, dance, music and performance art.

Marc Eysink Smeets: "Since our arrival in 2018, we have felt a strong connection with Tilburg and its open, progressive and creative culture. In the vibrant centre, we have the opportunity to bring the city and our visitors into contact with the circus in other ways and to connect them to our annual festival." 

Festival Circolo is of course there to entertain the public, but also serves as a showcase and international platform for artists, programmers, policy makers and other circus enthusiasts. Students of the two Dutch higher professional education circus courses, ACaPA in Tilburg and Codarts in Rotterdam, get the chance to show themselves here.

World Poverty Day

On 17 October it is World Poverty Day. That is exactly during Festival Circolo. That is why the organization has joined forces with Quiet, a national organization that works for people at or below the minimum subsistence level. Quiet and Festival Circolo offer entrepreneurs and their company the opportunity to buy Double Tickets: for themselves and for people from Tilburg who can't afford it themselves.
