Circuses are coming to Longview, Castle Rock on Tuesday evening

Companies will host two performances at each location


The circuses are coming to town. Two companies plan to set up big tops Tuesday in Longview and Castle Rock.

The Jordan World Circus will host two, two-hour performances at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. at the Cowlitz County fairgrounds on Seventh Avenue in Longview.

Culpepper & Merriweather, an Oklahoma-based company, will host two 90-minute shows at 5 and 7:30 p.m. in the open field behind Castle Rock Elementary School on Huntington Avenue South.


The Jordan World Circus is a traveling circus owned by a Las Vegas couple with a background in aerial performances, according to its website. The company says events include a high wire, a juggling clown, a bounce house, face painting, elephant rides and food concessions.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for kids ages 3 to 12. Children ages 2 and under can attend for free.

Jonathon Rodeback, the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce president and Castle Rock Pharmacy owner, said the chamber is sponsoring the circus to bring togetherness after the pandemic’s isolation.

“We thought it would be a fun thing to do for the community, especially after the shutdowns,” he said. “It’s a good way to reunite.”

Performances include aerialists, cockatoos, tigers named Delilah and Solomon, and a lion named Wendell, according to the company’s website.

Castle Rock circus advance tickets are $12 for adults and $7 for children ages 2 to 12 and seniors ages 65 and older. The day of the show, tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for children and seniors.
