Information for the Circus Bazaar, a popular event for children, at Kirari Fujimi.
Each year in early July, Kirari Fujimi – a community center beside Lalaport Fujimi – host a circus event called Circus Bazaar. The bazaar is on for two days annually. In 2023 that is Saturday July 8th and Sunday July 9th. There are different elements to the festival, some of which either require advance application and / or a fee. But there are also plenty of that don’t require advance application. However, some of them do have a nominal fee. For example, if children want to practise the diabolo (juggling prop) with members of the circus it costs 300 yen for the workshop.
Moreover, they will have an actual circus in the main hall of Kirari! It costs 1000 yen for adults and 500 yen for children. There is also a smaller circus show in the Marchi Hall that is free, but you need to get a participation ticket. Ticket information, reservations and purchases web page here.
