70th Anniversary of the Florida State Flying High Circus

The Florida State University Alumni Association’s Flying High Circus Alumni Network is a way for past performers and friends of the Flying High Circus to stay connected into the present. Comprised of over 500 members located all over the world, the Alumni Network strives to keep the FSU circus community engaged in supporting one of Florida State University’s best and most unique traditions. The organization was originally founded as a way for alumni to support the current Flying High Circus program and ensure its longevity for generations to come. However, the Alumni Network’s mission has expanded into functioning as a community for veteran circus performers to remain in touch through social gatherings, as well as to provide networking opportunities for current students.

The FSU Flying High Circus Alumni Network is thrilled to be celebrating the FSU Circus’ 70th anniversary in 2017! Throughout the past seven decades, the Flying High Circus has performed for millions of people worldwide, entertaining all ages while making unforgettable memories and forging enduring friendships throughout the process.

We have expanded our merchandise selection this year to include special 70th anniversary items! Tervis Tumblers, T-shirts, ticket packages and more! See the information below for more on how to support the FSU Flying High Circus Alumni Network and celebrate an incredible 70 years of circus magic.
