The Shriners in Southern Illinois are best known for their community service, civic involvement in local parades and for their support of the Shriners Hospital for children.
For the Ainad Shriners, the circus is more than a fundraiser. It is our opportunity to give back to Southern Illinois, by making it possible for everyone to have a circus experience. The Shrine Circus brings something important to the community - quality, affordable, family entertainment. Each year hundreds of deserving children, who would otherwise not have the oppurtunity to attend, experience the circus free of charge through our "Circus Dad" program. We thank our sponsors for making this possible.
