What is Cirque De Virgo? Well, they’re description pretty much sums it up quite succinctly. “A 3-day event filled with artists and performers of every walk – from sideshow to flow art, from magician to musician! A festival inspired by circus life!” Cirque De Virgo is a circus-inspired event with a large variety of music and focuses on performance arts of sideshow, burlesque, magicians, dancers, aerialists, clowns and of course all the flow arts and fire acts! It’s an outdoor event with a large covered stage and pavilion as well as showers, hiking, and camping in the gorgeous knobs of Berea KY!
