    World Juggling Tour 2018... See Video Here

    Dear circus friends,

    Dear World Circus Day’s participants,

    We are pleased to send you the World Juggling Tour video based on an unprecedented  worldwide collaboration. With this video we want to pay tribute to the 250 years old modern circus during World Circus Day 2018, which is an emblematic, important day for the international circus community. 


    We invite you to use widely this production during your World Circus Day celebrations.

    We hope that the World Juggling Tour initiated and carried on by the Federation opens the possibility of working together in other challenging projects in the future.  

    Happy World Circus Day and long live the circus!

    Best regards,

    Urs Pilz

    SLA Commemorative Memorial Service

    The Showmen’s League of America will commemorate the 100th anniversary of Showmen’s Rest and pay tribute to the victims of the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus on this the 100th year of the horrific train wreck. Services will take place May 17, 2018 at Woodlawn Cemetery, 7750 W. Cermak Road, Forest Park, IL 60130.

    The Memorial Program will be at “Showmen’s Rest” to honor the vision of our forefathers to provide this place of internment and commemorate those of our organizations that are laid to rest here and elsewhere.  We will also pay tribute to the members of the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus who were laid to rest in Showmen’s Rest as a result of the horrific train wreck of June 22, 1918.

    We will begin assembling at the Woodlawn Cemetery Chapel at 11:00 am and start with a buffet style lunch at 11:30 am.  We will move to the site of Showmen’s Rest where Master of Ceremonies, Al Slaggert, will begin the Memorial Service at 1:00pm.   A ninety-minute service will encompass and reflect on the past works of our organizations, cover the spiritual aspects and the camaraderie of those past and present.

    Lunch is $25 per person. RSVP office@Showmensleague.org as seating is limited.

    Transportation from the Chapel to Showmen’s Rest is available for the elderly and handicapped
