The Thanksgiving tradition continues with the 85th annual Hadi Shrine Circus set for several performances beginning Thanksgiving Day (November 22nd) through Sunday, November 25th at the Ford Center. Once again this year, the Shriners are thanking our local members of the military for their service by offering free tickets to any performance!

The offer is open to active duty military personnel here at home, or stationed abroad, and their families. To take advantage of the offer, bring your military ID to the Hadi Shrine Temple at the corner of Riverside and Walnut in downtown Evansville during our live broadcast on Monday, November 12th from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Present your ID to any Shrine member (the guy's in the red hats), and they'll gladly give you as many tickets as you need for any performance listed below.

  • Thursday, November 22nd - 5:00 p.m.
  • Friday, November 23rd - 9:30 a.m., 2:00 p.m., and 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, November 24th - 9:30 a.m., 2:00 p.m, and 7:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, November 25th - 3:00 p.m.

This year's circus will feature a special performance from Bello Nock, who became a star after his run on the 2017 edition of America's Got Talent performing death-defying stunts including this one where he shot himself out of a cannon over a running helicopter.
