August 30th – September 2nd, 2013

The Zoppè Family Circus will be returning to Winter Park Resort this Labor Day Weekend to delight and entertain both young and old inside their 500 seat circus tent. 

Celebrating the Old-World traditions of the Italian Circus, the Zoppè family conduct a one ring performance to the beat of a traditional story while effortlessly combining acrobatic feats, equestrian showmanship, canine capers, clowning and plenty of audience participation. 

Giovanni Zoppè, a 6th generation circus performer, plays the central character of Nino, our story teller and clown and stands by his promise to “Try to touch every emotion during the show.  They’ll laugh, they’ll cry, and they’ll feel for the characters. It’s more of an event than a show.”

At the heart of this 160 year old circus lies a strong sense of family and the traditional values that the show’s current members still uphold today.   Giovanni is especially grateful to his father, who at 82 years old, still manages to wow the crowd every time he steps into the ring. “He’s the star of the show,” Giovanni says. “He’s the one that will capture you. He’s just an amazing performer. I’m very proud to see him in the ring and performing.”
