Circus: Culture for Millions!

The European Circus Association (ECA) was established to unite Europe’s circuses in order to promote and preserve circus arts and culture as part of Europe’s cultural heritage.

ECA is a non-profit organization. Its members include circus owners and directors, festivals, animal trainers and artists as well as other organizations representing the same interests. Together the ECA believes we can ensure that the circus continues to enchant, educate and entertain children of all ages. This includes all kinds of circus, travelling or permanent, big or small, involving varying mixes of artistic displays, acrobatics, comedy and trained animals. Circus comes in many forms. Altogether they provide culture for millions!
