Young and old are invited to attend Knoxville’s Fourth Annual Circus Extravaganza, a unique display of aerial entertainment and circus fun that benefits populations with special needs in the community. Up to 1,500 audience members will enjoy Knoxville’s hometown circus with local talent performing daring feats on trapeze and aerial fabrics, juggling, unicycling, acrobatics and more.

The event, put on by Dragonfly Aerial Arts Studio and sponsored by WIVK, includes three performances at the Clayton Performing Arts Center at Pellissippi State Community College. The shows will be held on Friday, March 13 at 7 p.m., and Saturday, March 14 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Proceeds will go towards circus programs for at-risk youth and adults with autism. These programs promote improved self-esteem, physical agility and social skills.

All tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance at or at the Clayton Center’s box office prior to each performance. Charitable organizations may contact Dragonfly at 865-609-2012 for discounted group tickets.
