Holiday Time with the Pickled Brothers Circus

Hello Circus fans! Once again the Pickled Brothers are going to be very busy this Holiday season.

November 30th through December 2nd, Erik and Travis will be in Galveston, TX for Dickens on the Strand. Join us, and many other performers for Galveston’s Victorian street festival. Shop with the vendors, eat some great food, watch some great parades, and even meeet some of Charles Dickens’ descendants read from their famous relative’s books.

December 8 and 15 see Erik, Susan, and Travis in New Bern, NC for Tryon Palace’s Christmas Masquerade. See the Pickled Brothers, tour historical buildings decorated for Christmas in their own time periods, watch re-enactments by professional actors, period music, and great food. Get your tickets now, because this event ALWAYS sells out!

No matter where you are, we hope everyone has a great holiday season.  If we don’t see you in Texas or North Carolina, we hope to see you in 2019! 

Travis fills in for Santa!

Just 2 weeks left of the Ohio Renaissance Festival!

October 20-21 and 27-28 are the final weekends for 2018’s Ohio Renaissance Festival. With the weather cooling down, and temperatures expected to be in the 50s, it’s the perfect time to visit! You can see the Pickled Brothers Circus 4 times a day at the Pub View Stage, just inside the front gate, at 12:00, 1:45, 3:30, and 5:00!

Also remember, Christmas is less than 2 months from the final day that the festival is open.  Get your Christmas shopping done early!

This will also be the last times you can see the Pickled Brothers Circus in Ohio in 2018. After the festival ends, we are off to Texas and North Carolina in November and December, then not appearing in the area again until February. So if you want to get your fix of sword swallowing, fire-eating, and watching people get impaled on a bed of nails, this is your chance!
