The Hadi Shrine Circus will celebrate its 80th anniversary Thanksgiving weekend, and once again, the Shriners are showing their gratitude to the men and women of our armed forces by providing free tickets to active duty members of the military and their immediate families.

To claim the tickets, simply stop by the parking lot of the Hadi Shrine Temple at the corner of Riverside and Walnut in downtown Evansville on Monday, November 11th (Veteran's Day, coincidentally) between 5-7pm. Members of the Temple will be on site to give you as many tickets as you need, good for any one of the eight performances inside the Ford Center Thanksgiving weekend.

Tickets are available to the families of service men and women currently stationed overseas, and those just recently returning from overseas deployment. According to the Hadi Shrine Temple, "immediate family" refers to husbands, wives, children, and anyone living within the same household. A valid family military ID is required.

The 80th annual Hadi Shrine Circus performances are scheduled for the following times:

  • Thursday, November 28th: 3:00 p.m
  • Friday, November 29th: 9:30 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, November 30th: 9:30 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, December 1st: 3:00 p.m.
