Circo Osorio Circus in Victoria

Circo Osorio Circus is a circus company based in Las Vegas but with Mexican roots. Full of international talent, the group of performers tours the United States and Canada each year. In 2023, their “Run Away with the Circus” show visited Victoria from October 5th to 9th. The shows took place in a Big Top outside Mayfair Shopping Centre located at 3147 Douglas Street. 2024 dates and details are to be confirmed.

The circus always puts on loud and thrilling shows with a Latin flavour. Exotic animals aren’t involved in any of the acts. Instead, the shows are full of talented acrobats, clowns and other traditional types of circus performers. When it returns, you can expect to see the Wheel of Destiny, acrobats doing flips, motorcycles doing tricks in a steel globe, and other amazing acts.

The family-friendly shows usually take place in a huge tent and run for about an hour and a half with a short intermission. There’s a concession area selling snacks and drinks, as well as a souvenir stand with balloons, toys, light-up toys and more.

Tips and Suggestions

The following tips are good to know before attending the Circo Osorio Circus shows.

TIP #1: Seating is not reserved. If you want one of the best seats, be sure to arrive at least 30 minutes before the show, or at least 45 before if you want a spot right by the stage. We recommend sitting as close to the action as possible (unless you have a bad neck in which case you might want to sit further back).

TIP #2: There are no bad seats. You can see really well even at the back of the venue.

TIP #3: Circo Osorio Circus tickets are available online. All purchases at the venue are cash only. This includes tickets at the door, snacks, drinks and everything else. There’s usually an ATM machine on site, plus there are banks at the mall.

TIP #4: Cameras are allowed throughout the show. Don’t be scared to pull out your phone and record or photograph some of the excitement! During the show the photos are free. At intermission, if you want a picture of your kids with one of the performers, there is usually a charge of about $5.
