Coney Island Circus Sideshow

Coney Island Circus Sideshow

Continuous Admission 1pm - 8pm (last ticket sold at 7pm)

Sideshows by the Seashore is the last permanently housed not for profit venue in the USA where you can experience the thrill of a traditional ten-in-one circus sideshow. They're here, they're real and they're alive! Freaks, wonders and human curiosities!

We perform continuous admission and we are conveniently located at the world famous Coney Island amusement park. Think about it folks, the ten-in-one circus sideshow is another Coney Island gift to culture along with other Brooklyn beach inventions like the hot dog and the roller coaster. Established by Coney Island, USA in 1985, where else would you find the world's first professional non-profit theatre dedicated to keeping alive the American sideshow?
