Created in 1974 by His Majesty the Prince of Monaco Rainier III, the International Circus Festival in Monte Carlo became the largest and most significant circus event in the world. The award of the Golden Clown Festival is the most prestigious circus prize in the world. Only the best circus acts from different countries take part in the Festival every year. The Festival performances are broadcasted around the world.
Held every year in mid-January, the event features spectacular animal acts, uproarious comedic performances, and masterfully choreographed acrobatic feats. Each act is judged on its technical difficulty and creativity by a panel composed of seasoned circus professionals from around the world.
