Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus Comes to Oklahoma City


If you are looking for a treat that you can take the whole family to this June, then you will be happy to know that the infamous Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus will be in Oklahoma City for four days and five shows from June 23rd – June 26th.  It has been a long time since this show has come through Oklahoma City, so do not think that this is a once a year opportunity that you can pass on now and experience later. 

The show is well known for its multitude of performances, daring stunts, and its use of  wide range of animals.  So if your family is one that enjoys spending quality time under the “big top” then this is just the show for you.  It is billed as the Barnum’s FUNundrum, and it is also known as the blue tour.  There will be feature performances from a motorcycle group that will ride around a sixteen foot circle that is known as the Spherical Miracle, contortionists, and high wire trapeze artists, just to name a few. 

Depending on which performance you decide to attend you will want to make sure that you get your tickets as early as possible.  Prices can range anywhere from $49 – $129 depending on which day you want to attend and where you want to sit.  I’m hoping to be down as close to the action as possible so that I can see the elephants and tigers close up, but my friend is sitting up higher because he likes the trapeze act and says it can only be appreciated from higher seating. 

The Wimgo Happenings blog has information on the circus’s visit to OKC.

BAM’s Blog has a nice write-up on the circus.

    Tickets are only $50 bucks and up then!? Well!! That makes the circus accessible to everyone…NOT. I’m just a mom wanting to take herself, her husband her kid and another kid…Can you imagine the tab if you were a mother of 6??? Where are the $10 children’s tickets on the commercial. Even if it’s just the adults paying upwards of $100 each. What a joke. I’ll miss you clowns. Wish we could see you tigers. Hope my son gets to see you next year. We’ll start saving now…

    This article is useless. You haven’t given any times, just the dates. I’ve been searching online and after much searching finally found that they are all sold out of tickets to all the dates here in OKC. Done, sold out. Just started TODAY, and they are already sold out through sunday. Ridiculous. Sure would have been helpful to have dates and times and maybe a phone number for that we can call with info.
