Yaarab Shrine is known for having the World’s Largest Shrine Circus and this year is Yaarab Shrine's 77th Annual Shrine Circus. It is a popular annual family event that offers an affordable, safe, and wholesome environment for adults and children of all ages. In addition to the circus performances under The Big Top, there are more than 40 exciting carnival rides and attractions, as well as lots of food such as hot wings, funnel cakes, cotton candy, fried Oreos, snow cones, elephant ears, and more.

​​The Circus Midway (no circus) will be on the grounds of Jim R. Miller Park beginning on Friday May 17th at 5pm. The midway opens Monday through Friday at 5pm, 10am on Saturdays and Memorial Day, and 12pm on Sundays. Circus performances will begin on Saturday, May 18th at 11am and will run through Monday, Memorial Day, May 27th.

New this year is an arts and crafts show inside the brand new Event Center during both weekends of this year’s Circus. The new 30,000 square foot Event Center will be filled with arts and craft vendors from all over the southeast. ​Firework shows will be held Saturday, May 18th and Saturday May 25th - a huge fireworks display will fill the night for everyone to see!
Circus goers can enjoy circus acts from around the world under The Big Top: high-flying trapeze acts, aerials and acrobats, amazing animals and of course, world-famous Shrine clowns who will delight and entertain crowds! The Yaarab Shrine Circus is one of two annual fundraising drives conducted by Yaarab Shrine. The proceeds go to continuing the operations of Yaarab Shrine so that Atlanta's Shriners can continue raising money for Shriners Hospitals for Children.
