Cirque du Soleil Is Returning to the Santa Monica Pier

This Marks Cirque du Soleil’s First Big Top Show In Santa Monica Since 2014

The renowned Cirque du Soleil production, KOOZA, is set to dazzle audiences once again as it returns to the Santa Monica Pier from Oct. 19 to Dec. 1. This comeback marks the first time since 2014 that Cirque du Soleil will raise its iconic Big Top at this beloved location.

With its blend of performances, whimsical characters, and vibrant spectacles, KOOZA is set to deliver the signature Cirque du Soleil experience in its most thrilling form. From high-flying acrobatics to hilarious clowning, the production offers an immersive journey filled with wonder and excitement.

Since its debut in 2007, KOOZA has captivated nearly 8 million spectators across 65 cities and 22 countries, earning acclaim worldwide for its audacious acrobatics and bold comedy. Now, audiences in Santa Monica will have the chance to experience the magic firsthand.

Mayor Phil Brock expressed his enthusiasm for Cirque du Soleil’s return, stating, “The return of Cirque du Soleil to Santa Monica is a welcomed reprise of this beloved production to enhance Santa Monica’s vibrant arts and culture offerings. I’m looking forward to seeing show-goers enjoy our beautiful city and encourage everyone to make a day of it by visiting our local restaurants and attractions.”

KOOZA, known for its breathtaking stunts and heart-stopping thrills, promises an unforgettable experience for audiences of all ages. From the mesmerizing High Wire act to the jaw-dropping Wheel of Death, the show showcases the remarkable talents of its performers while paying homage to the rich traditions of the circus arts.

In addition to its Santa Monica engagement, Cirque du Soleil will also perform under the Big Top at the Laguna Hills Mall from June 8 to July 21.

Cirque du Soleil’s history in Santa Monica dates back to its first United States debut at the opening of the Los Angeles Festival in 1987. The company’s initial performance at the Santa Monica Pier marked a significant milestone in its journey to global acclaim, setting the stage for numerous successful productions in the years to come.

Tickets for the Santa Monica performances of KOOZA are now available exclusively to Club Cirque members, with general on-sale set to begin on May 6. For ticket information and subscriptions, visit cirqueclub.com and cirquedusoleil.com/kooza, respectively.
