What an incredible outpouring of love and support for Girl Circus we've seen over the past few weeks! So far we've raised more than six thousand dollars to support Girl Circus' programs, camps, and shows, and it's all thanks to you, the Girl Circus family. We'd like to thank you all for your support of Girl Circus, especially in this time when we believe that the arts, and supporting women in the arts, are more important than ever.
Thank you again from Darcy, Walter, Dave, and everyone in Girl Circus.

The Girl Circus camp season is over! We travelled to Lopez Island, Portland, and all the way to downtown Eugene this year for three week-long summer camps, with almost a hundred participants between the ages of 5 and 15! Spreading self-confidence, strength, and Girl Power all through the Pacific Northwest!
All of this would not be possible without the help of our sponsors, donors, and Girl Circus family. We'd like to thank all of you for your support, and extend a special thanks to:
The Oregon Country Fair
The Little Church
The WoW Hall
Oregon Cultural Trust
Lane Arts Council
Here's to another great Girl Circus year!
Girl Circus is back from the Oregon Country Fair! We had another super successful season bringing our special brand of girl power, strength, creativity and fun to everyone who is a girl or who loves a girl.
If you couldn't make it out the fair to see us, worry not; we will be uploading recordings of the whole show to our youtube channel! Check it out at Youtube.com/girlcircus, where the first act will be up today: Purple Faeries Lyra, starring Tiffany, Elowyn, and Kaya.
Performance camp starts tomorrow! June 20 -24 at the Wow hall. If you are in the Girl Circus performance corps (I think you know who you are!) be there at 10:00 ready to create our new show! Bring lunch, snacks, water bottle and water clothes easy to move around in. Performance camp is FULL and by audition only
