Circus Vargas Discount Tickets: Santa Ana, Ventura, Laguna Hills, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo
My favorite circus has to be Circus Vargas, and I’ll tell you why. Or just skip down for my roundup of 2018 Circus Vargas ticket deals to their new show Dreaming of Pirates. First, this California-based circus brings back the thrill of the traditional traveling circus, which I find lacking in many circuses today.
Second, they know how to make the circus exciting without exploiting animals. Gotta love that. Also, Circus Vargas isn’t a big corporate operation, they are a multi-generational family operation. And besides, the kids love the show, which is the best reason of all.
Full disclosure: A few years ago, the folks at Circus Vargas asked me to work with them to offer a special discount for Savvy Cities readers. But two days into the promotion, they called back and asked me to stop. Turns out they were not set up to handle quite so many savvy readers calling to order tickets (and as a blogger, I don’t process ticket sales). No matter, I’m still going to tell how to get the best ticket price, which is currently from a successful SoCal ticket discount company that I often recommend.
No coupon or code needed to order half price tickets online. Like many savvy companies, Circus Vargas works with others to help fill seats and create new circus fans. I have purchased tickets from this deal source many times and confidently recommend them, although I do hope Circus Vargas (who sells full price tickets on their website) will someday offer us a deal directly for savvy California readers.
- Free Pre-Show — Show up early for the Free Interactive Pre-Show. They will invite kids of all ages into center ring to clown around under the Big Top, with a crash course in juggling, feather balancing and hula-hooping. The performers are very kid-friendly.
- Audience Engagement — In the beginning, a few children are invited into the ring to get into the act. And throughout the performance, performers engage the audience as a whole. You can see in in their response to the show.
- Souvenirs — If you like to pick up little gift items and circus-themed toys, plan ahead — you’ll find plenty to choose from. Also, you’ll see a photographer walking around and can take home a souvenir photo for around $10, last checked. Show programs are $5, but you can get a circus member to autograph them at the end of the show if you like.
