Here we are nearly half way through July and the festival planning is in full swing!

American Arts Experience welcomes a new organization on board this year: Circus Harmony will amaze and inspire crowds during their Saturday and Sunday performances, free with admission to the City Museum. 

A special addition to the Circus Harmony line up and the youngest human cannonball in the world, Elliana Grace will take the stage from October 17-20. A young performer who went from being a student at Circus Harmony to gaining a featured spot on the ‘Greatest Show on Earth’, Elliana is part of the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey tribe.
