Do it in Detroit: The UniverSoul Circus is Back!

The UniverSoul Circus, also now as the most interactive circus in the world, is making its annual appearance in Detroit at Chene Park. The UniverSoul Circus has entertained families and groups of all ages since 1994. It is the only African-American owned and produced single-ring circus in the world. The UniverSoul Circus will be performing in the Motor City at Chene Park from September 9 through September 20 2009 and is currently hiring for the 2009 season. Detailed information has been included below for your convenience.

The multi-racial, multi-national UniverSoul Circus began, as a vision by the founder, Cedric Walker, to explore and present another set of the talents of black performers and entertainers. Walker has been a music producer, entrepreneur and totally self-financed the first year of the Circus. By 1997 the circus tour had grown to 10 cities, 19 cities in 1999, 31 cities in 2000, toured South Africa 2001– its first international destination, and 32 cities in 2005.
