PLEASE NOTE: Each person wishing to register for the event (youth, chaperone, showcase audience member, volunteer, or workshop leader) must have THEIR OWN account with a unique email address and be logged in when registering. There is only one registration per account. (For example: If you are a parent buying tickets for two of your children, please make separate accounts for each child and buy their ticket while logged into their account!) Any questions about registration, membership, or trouble logging in should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
AYCO youth member: $90
Non AYCO youth member: $100
PSCA student discount: $10 off **Must use code to receive discount. Please check with PSCA for the code – the discount CANNOT be applied retroactively if you register without it!**
AYCO Youth membership costs $35/year and you get special surprises in the mail, a monthly email newsletter just for youth, discounts on AYCO events, and discounts on circus gear! Click here to get a Youth Membership or become a member when you register for the festival above!
Showcase ticket: $10 (Showcase attendance is included with youth registration. Chaperones must purchase a ticket for admission to the Showcase. Chaperones can purchase tickets online at the time of registration as a chaperone, or can purchase at the door. Guests can purchase tickets online by clicking the registration link, or at the door.)
Attendees must be at least 8 years old at the time of the festival.
All chaperones must register (for no cost). Chaperones have access to a separate chaperone space and dinner. The Chaperones may not attend workshops. For admission to the evening Showcase, chaperones must purchase a Showcase ticket as space is limited. One chaperone can be responsible for up to 10 youth.
Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 or is experiencing symptoms may cancel registration and receive a full refund at any time. Refunds for other reasons are allowed until a week before the event – Saturday April 21st (email email@example.com).
All festival attendees must fill out the event waiver in order to participate. (This includes chaperones, workshop leaders, staff, and volunteers). Please make sure to fill this out before coming to the festival!
Please note: Workshop sign-up is on a different system than you used to register! However, you must use the same FULL NAME and the same EMAIL ADDRESS when creating an account for workshop sign-up so that the two systems match. Check out our handy FAQ about signing up for workshops using the Sched website here!
Questions about the festival and workshops should go Shana Kennedy at firstname.lastname@example.org.

***SUBJECT TO CHANGE***
Vaccinations / Testing
All adults (including workshop leaders and chaperones) must provide proof of vaccination. Kids, upon arrival, will be asked to provide proof of vaccination, or they will be given a rapid test on-site. Anyone testing positive will not be able to attend the festival and will be refunded.
Masks will be required of all participants and chaperones. Participants will be encouraged to go outdoors for breaks and for unmasked times (meals, snacks). If indoors due to rain, meals will be socially-distanced throughout the building. Performers in the showcase can be unmasked when they are performing. Circus Campus is a large, airy space with open windows, fans, and outdoor green space!
