Event Details:

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® presents DRAGONS is a once in a millennium event that honors The Year of the Dragon. Circus performers from the farthest reaches of the earth have assembled for DRAGONS to showcase their astounding acts of bravery and astonishing athleticism. This fantastical celebratory tournament of circus champions brings together mystic dragon lore with authentic circus feats. DRAGONS is a never-before-seen blend of renowned spiritual and real life legends that can be found only at The Greatest Show On Earth®

DRAGONS performs at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va. from Wednesday, April 10 - Sunday, April 21. Prior to heading to the Patriot Center, DRAGONS performs at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. from March 20 - 24 and the 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore, Md. from March 27 - April 7.  

The anticipation builds throughout DRAGONS as Children of All Ages bear witness to one phenomenal Ringling Bros. circus act after another. From Shaolin Warriors who execute intense and fearless Kung Fu martial arts dating back to the 5th Century, to the equestrian acrobat Cossack Riders who perform intricate maneuvers on horseback, to the Torres Family who will shatter all records by putting eight family members on specialized motorcycles in the Globe of Steel. Each performance pays tribute to the spirit and strength of the DRAGON. You can only experience this kind of fiery excitement at Ringling Bros.

The All Access Power Up Pre-show Party is hosted one hour before show time and is free to all ticket holders. The pre-show allows audience members to meet and take photos with performers, try on circus costumes, learn circus skills and have the chance to win a masterpiece painting by one of the Ringling Bros. artistic Asian elephants.
