Spend Valentine's day with the circus you love at the theater you adore. Rose City Circus was born in Portland, Oregon, in 2013, and this year, you can see them do their thing at Alberta Rose Theatre, a Portland favorite in its own right. As a group of performers, their vision is to bring inspiration and excitement to every audience. Every performance is shaped by originality, individual talents, and overall energy. Get silly with your partner, bring a group to enjoy the madness, and see some absolutely epic talent on stage. It's a great time to celebrate with a night of Circus, Music & Love!
