My Circus Valentine 2/18 6pm

February 18 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

$10.00 – $50.00

Limited tickets will be available at the door. Arrive early and we’ll have room for you, dears!

Valentine’s Day can feel like a holiday that’s just for certain people, while others are left to awkwardly try to ignore it until it passes, or play along with a smile, even if they’re not feelin’ the love. 

If you need some new magic in your life…

If there’s a dark rain cloud following you around everywhere you go…

If you forget how small-talk works, and never ever ever want to remember again…

If you are madly in love and walking around 10 feet above the ground with your head in a rainbow… 

If you’ve been isolated in your room and the squirrel at  your window is your most frequent visitor… 

If you’re locked in a seemingly endless battle with the one you love most…

If every now and then you desire to dance with something wild and untamed…

If you can’t quit dipping your spoon into the wrong bowl…

If it was beautiful, but just not meant to be…

If your happy place is dancing solo…

If you are game for adventure…

My Circus Valentine is for you. 

My Circus Valentine, the BCG’s longest-running curated circus show, prides itself on sidestepping the usual Valentine fare and providing something more authentic and visceral, expressing a broad palette of states of the heart. Since 2010, My Circus Valentine has offered a balm, a boost, and a welcome diversion for tender and calloused hearts alike. The event is a fabulous date-night, friends-night, or family night.

Featuring many local Bellingham Circus Guild artists, dazzling special guests, gravity-defying artistry, and the kind of fun only the finest circus can concoct, this event is more than a show. Guests encounter a world full of dreamy magic, a carefully curated experience aimed to remind us that what seems impossible might not be quite so out of reach, and that the things we share in common–the things that make us most human–can connect us, even in the darkest times.

COVID has hit us hard, and we all need to let loose! Whether you’re ready to hit the town or snuggle down with the circus in your very own living room, this show is for YOU. We have ticket options for everyone:


  • Vaccinated attendees only, due to the current Omicron spike. All cast, crew, and team members are fully vaccinated, as well.
  • Limited capacity for COVID safety.
  • All in-person attendees must be fully vaccinated (as defined by the CDC).
  • All in-person attendees must wear a mask* over their mouth and nose at all times throughout the show.
  • Sliding-scale dress rehearsal show with low-price ticket options and a limited number of discount rate tickets for those on a budget.

*In light of the current spike in COVID cases in Whatcom county, we ask that attendees wear an N-95 style mask (N-95, KN-95 or KF-94) or double-mask (a surgical mask + a fabric mask), to maximize COVID safety for all present.


  • FRI (2/11): 6pm (sliding scale dress rehearsal show)
  • SAT (2/12), SUN (2/13), MON (2/14): 6pm & 9pm
  • FRI (2/18): 6pm 
  • SAT (2/19) & SUN (2/20): 6pm & 9pm

Livestreams Sunday 2/13 and 2/20 include access to the video online for a week or more.
