Congratulations to

Stilt Circus

WFA's 2017 Barham Award Recipient!

Stilt Circus elevates a familiar act to new heights, donning handmade, original costumes to portray over 200 characters. If that's not enough to choose from, Stilt Circus even offers to create custom costumes for any event. Over the course of a fair or festival, your guests are unlikely to see any costume twice.


"The photo opportunities and interaction with our guests
was beyond what we had hoped for.
Stilt Circus served wondrously as the face of our Fair!"

~ Barbara Quaid
Ventura County Fair CEO & WFA Past President
