Hundreds gathered in Mullumbimby for the Circus Festival which was held over the weekend at the showgrounds. The three day festival showcased a broad spectrum of Australian circus artists, profiling both established shows and companies as well as supporting emerging artists and works in development.

First held in 2001, the Mullum Circus Festival has taken place every two years since 2013 in the Mullumbimby showgrounds.

Highlights of this year’s event were performances by Fly Factory, The Pitts Family Circus and Lachlan McAulay just to name a few and included the 2017 Circus Olympics complete with backsault and headstand competitions.

The event is produced by Spaghetti Circus, one of Australia’s leading regional youth circuses who celebrated 25 years in 2017.
