Nashville: Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus Pass Giveaway

Disclosure: I received free tickets for the circus in exchange for this promotional post.

This giveaway is closed! Congrats to Wendy, Rebecca F., Keith Overby, Steve N. and Becca. Please check your email!

It’s January which means the Greatest Show on Earth is headed to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena!

Once again I am excited to offer tickets to give away to my readers so you can share this fun experience with their families. We took our girls to the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus for the first time three years ago when they were just 8 and 5 and it’s now a tradition that my girls look forward to, not to mention that going to the circus is a special outing I recall from my own childhood. There’s just something exciting about heading downtown to see such amazing performances and talent all under one roof.

Speaking of talent, the Ringling Bros. YouTube channel features several behind-the-scenes videos. This one is a favorite of my 8-year-old, who loves gymnastics. I’ve always been fascinated at the intense training and endurance that the circus performers must be dedicated to in order to keep up the level of professionalism of Ringling Bros.

I’m giving away FIVE family four-packs of ticket vouchers. Five lucky Middle Tennessee area readers will have the chance to see the Built to Amaze production at Bridgestone Arena Jan. 24-26. There are several show times to choose from, making it easy to fit into your busy schedule.

    The pre-show opportunity to mingle with performers is my favorite. That’s such a surprising, fun and interactive way to learn about and participate in the circus – and it’s free! My daughter has painted with elephants and jumped rope with clowns. Last time, my husband was dragged into the ring by acrobats who had us and the rest of the crowd guffawing at the antics that included sliding at high speed through his legs! It’s a wonderful family tradition that we would love to repeat this year.

    I enjoy following you on twitter. My handle is @triagain. 🙂

    The entire experience! Seeing the talent that these people have is incredible, then going home and telling everyone else what you just saw! If I had to choose one, it would be the performances. Seeing it put together. I’m an uncle to the most beautiful little girl in the world, who’s never been to the circus, having her go see the best circus ever would be a dream come true! Thank you so very much!

    I love ALL of the animals! It is amazing to me that they travel around the world with these critters and teach them to perform! Thanks for the chance to win!

  4. Keith overby says:

    To be sad but honest, I have never been to a circus. With two kids and one being my seven year old girl, I would love to go. My wife went when she was little. My friend at work says I am UN American for not going yet. Hopefully we can soon.

  5. Wendy says:

    My favorite part of the circus is when the motorcyclists all ride inside the big metal globe–gets me every time!

  6. Rebecca Fuhrer says:

    My granddaughters have never been to the circus
    They would love to go. They are 4 yr old twins. Their mom is disabled so we take where they go
    .The girls love animals, horses, elephants , you name it. We live in the country
    . We would love tickets to expose these girls to one of my favorite childhood memories
    There are four of us. Thanks for your consideration.

    My 7 year old LOVES the circus, she went two years ago with my parents and has been asking if we can go this year. I haven’t been since I was a child and would love to go! I think I would like to see the tigers and elephants,,, they are such magic creatures!
