Shrine Circus Programs


The Shriners, a fraternal group founded in 1872, is best known for its support for hospitals for crippled children and burn victims. More than 130 Shrine Temples produce circuses every year throughout the United States and Canada. These events are a major component of the Shriners' fundraising efforts. The pre-circus street parade is kept alive by several Shrine Temples. They provide a drum and bugle corps, Oriental bands, the Arab Patrol, color guards, clowns, Mounted Patrols, brass bands and more. The circus program book sold at the event serves multiple purposes. It is a traditional program listing the acts and including pictures of the performers, a means to inform attendees of the good works performed by the Shriners and an advertising medium for local businesses. The Shrine Circus continues to be a very popular event in part because it is performed in smaller venues outside of major metropolitan areas. We have acquired a small collection of Shrine Circus Programs. Most are in very-fine to fine condition.
