Flynn Creek Circus

June 22, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

A unique big top experience comes to Amador County in June.  The Flynn Creek Circus, a rurally-based, circus-theater company, presents ‘Desert Myth’ at the Italian Picnic Grounds in Sutter Creek from June 22nd through the 25th.  Here is a description of the performance from their website:

Featuring wild stunts, hilarious comedy, and mind blowing skills, ‘Desert Myth’ is an acrobatic odyssey. A sudden sand storm separates our nomads from their home. Follow our lost as they journey through the desert looking for the oasis. The Tourist, the Cacti, the Wanderer and the Sand Spirit are just some of the colorful characters you will meet along the way. An eclectic blend of multi-cultural folklore, this provocative tale speaks to a thirst for truth in a dry landscape full of ‘misguides’. Charming and inspiring, ‘Desert Myth’ is a memory making event for the whole family…

Internationally award winning talents from around the globe come together in this star studded cast of creators.  This is the show everyone will be talking about this Summer. 

There will be seven performances over the four days the Flynn Creek Circus is in town.  Tickets range from $18 for a bar stool ticket for single people ready to mingle with others in the crowd to $81 for a bench suitable for two adults and a small child tp $179 for a VIP table for four.  Parking is free for show attendees and beer and other concessions will be available for purchase.  The Italian Picnic Grounds is located at 581 California Highway 49 in Sutter Creek, California.
