Cirque Italia is enforcing all recommendations set forth by the CDC and local municipalities. The safety of our guests and employees is of the utmost importance to us. Every member of the Cirque Italia family is committed to the health and wellness of its fans. As such, the water circus has made certain adjustments and accommodations in order to comply with the safety guidelines set forth by local and state officials. These adjustments and accommodations include some of the following:

-- We have restricted attendance to a fraction of our typical show attendance;

-- All employees are working to enforce the social distancing guidelines. In order to help facilitate this, we kindly ask that patrons purchase their tickets in advance (either via our website, call center, or in person at the ticket office), to assist our staff in accomplishing this in the most efficient way possible;

-- All employees and all attendees ages 3 and older are required to wear face masks inside the tent;

-- We have increased the number of hand sanitizers and hand washing stations in and around the tent;

-- Our crews are committed to keeping all areas as clean as possible and have been disinfecting all common areas prior to, during and after every show;

-- We also have masks available for purchase for any guests who arrive without one.
