Second stop of three Colorado cities

(Longmont, CO) – Outworld Brewing in Longmont, CO is happy to announce a special attraction it will host beginning July 28 on the property, The Venardos Circus (veh-NARR-dos), a Broadway-style animal-free circus. The Venardos Circus is back on the road with three Western Colorado stops in July and August.

After a first stop in Littleton, CO it will visit the Longmont/Boulder area at Outworld Brewing Company, 1725 Vista View Dr., Longmont, CO, from July 28 through August 8.

There will be 16 shows over two weeks at each location in the intimate red-and-white striped tent.

The Venardos Circus attracted roughly 100,000 patrons into its circus tent across a 20-city tour in 2019. It had just kicked off a second full year of touring with stops in more than 20 major US Cities scheduled across America prior to COVID shutdowns of live entertainment in March 2020. Pivoting quickly, Venardos Circus offered livestream productions and entertaining YouTube content to fans for about six months before surges made any gathering impossible and shut the circus down in December 2020.

“We are thrilled to be able to host such a fun and unique attraction like The Venardos Circus here at Outworld Brewing this summer,” explained Brenda Fuller, owner of Outworld Brewing.

Guests can expect to be transported back in time to the center ring of a centuries- old tradition, but one that has been reinvented for the next generation.
