Welcome to the world of the
Boston Circus Guild

We are a collaboration of over 80 circus performers, musicians, artists, dancers, and event producers from the greater Boston area, banded together to educate, inspire, and entertain audiences.

We function in a variety of ways.

Acts for Hire

We are Boston’s premiere contact for circus entertainment and live music for both private and corporate events. We are able to build custom packages to suit the needs of your event, in aesthetic, location, size and the like.

Produced Shows

We write and produce shows, performed locally, cast and workshopped by our guild members. This is a highly collaborative effort, and we currently partnered with the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) as an artist-in-residence. Our management teams works directly with our guild members to create fresh new acts for each production, while also assisting with costuming and rehearsal space.

Boston circus community


We are all performers; management team and staff included. We strive to create career opportunities for all of our guild members while fostering a network for performance ideas to live and breathe. We are able to provide networking and education opportunities in the circus community, access to rehearsal and performance space, paid gigs in Boston and greater New England area, and a management and peer group to provide feedback and push you further in your creative career.
