About The Osman Shrine Circus

The Osman Shrine Circus has been delighting audiences in Minnesota for 101 years, making this the 100th St. Paul Osman Shrine Circus. We started the Osman Shrine Circus in 1923 and are proud to have been a part of the Twin Cities, Minnesota community since then and still going strong.

The Osman Shrine Circus is a Minnesota tradition that brings joy and excitement to thousands of families every year. Adored by kids and adults, our performance includes acrobatics, aerialists, clowns, horses, camels, dogs, cats, and more, who perform amazing acts and skills. They love sharing their talents with you—the fans that come to the Osman Shrine Circus each year.

Kids love the Shrine Circus! And if you’re an adult looking for some entertainment on your next night out, we’ve got plenty of exciting acts for you too! No matter what your interests are, you’ll find something to love at Osman Shrine circus.

We love being able to bring such a fun event to the Twin Cities every year, and we can’t wait to bring our show back to the people who make it so special: YOU!

At the Osman Shrine Circus, we welcome families with young children to enjoy our thrilling performances without having to worry about purchasing a separate ticket for their toddlers aged 2 and under. We understand that young children may not be able to sit through an entire show and may require the comfort of sitting in their parent’s lap.

Therefore, we offer a complimentary lap seat for toddlers aged 2 and under. This means that parents or guardians can bring their young children to the circus without any additional cost. Please note that this offer is limited to one lap seat per paying adult.
