Presented by Spaghetti Circus, the Mullum Circus Festival happens every 2 years at the beautiful Mullumbimby Showgrounds under Mt Chincogan in the Byron Shire.

MCF 2020 Dates Announced!

We are pleased to announce the date of the next Mullum Circus Festival and Training Project as September/October 2020!
We had originally planned for 2019, but after a great deal of consideration we have decided to hold off for one extra year and focus on 2020. Spaghetti Circus is looking at ways of making this little circus school that could, even better for its young artists and their families, the staff, alumni and wider community.
After gaining visibility on the national and world stage with projects like our premiere performance at the Commonwealth Games in April, Spaghetti Circus has been approached to undertake some exciting new creative projects in the coming year.
In addition, an opportunity has arisen for us to make some much needed structural improvements to our well loved and functional, but somewhat rustic shed. If successful our Spaghetti Shed will be warmer in winter, cooler in summer, safer and with more equipment and better storage.
With these things in mind, we have decided to hold off for one year and present the Mullum Circus Festival in September 2020. With an extra year of planning, we will be better able to produce this well-loved, vital event in a more sustainable and vibrant way. We’ll see you there!

Training Program: Monday 28th September – Thursday 1st October 2020
Festival Weekend: Friday 2nd October – Sunday 4th October 2020
