European Youth Circus 2022

Every two years Wiesbaden is host to a magnificent festival featuring talented, up-and-coming artistes: From 13 to 16 October 2022, the European Youth Circus will once again take place on the Dern'sches Gelände in Wiesbaden. Ticket sales exclusively at the Tourist Information or online.

Every two years the state 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.

25 performances from 14 countries

European artists between the ages of twelve and 25 were invited to apply and will present their artistic performances to the audience and the international jury in four competition events and two gala shows.

In June, the selection committee chose 25 performances from over 100 applications. The artists, who come from 14 different European countries, have confirmed their invitation to Wiesbaden.

The show will start on Thursday, 13 October 2022, at 7 pm with the premiere evening. On Saturday, 13 October 2022, the gala evening with the awards ceremony will take place in the festival tent from 7 pm.
