Catch shows at Grand Crossing Park on South Ingleside, Ogden Park on South Racine, Independence Park on North Springfield, Welles Park on West Sunnyside, and a great many more. Performers at the various locations include clowns, trapeze artists, jugglers, jump-ropers and an acrobatic bicyclist. Born out of an excursion to Europe by its organizers, Midnight Circus recreates the “intimate theatrical circuses we saw in the small parks and piazzas in Italy and France” all over Chicago.
