European Youth Circus

Every two years Wiesbaden is host to a magnificent festival featuring talented, up-and-coming artistes. In 2018 the European Youth Circus will run from Thursday to Sunday, 25 to 28 October. Tickets are already on sale.

Every two years the regional capital of Wiesbaden becomes the European hub of the circus, artiste and variety scene. The European Youth Circus is a special occasion both for the international audience and the people of Wiesbaden, making it one of the most outstanding dates in Wiesbaden’s cultural calendar.

Artistes Now Selected

The Selection Committee viewed 157 applications from artiste troupes and artistes wishing to take part in the European Youth Circus. They decided on 25 acts from eleven European countries who will now be invited to the artistes’ festival in Wiesbaden. Due to the high quality of the entries the selection process was not easy, but a final firm decision was taken by mutual agreement across the committee.

For a list of the participating artistes please see the downloadable flyer featured at the bottom of this page.

The "European Youth Circus" artistes festival has been bestowed a great honour: The President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, is to act as patron of the European Youth Circus in 2018.
