The circus is coming! The circus is coming!
Circus Bella is an open air, one-ring circus featuring contemporary, high-level acts. With three shows on Saturday, this is a must-do activity at the Hoes Down.

On Friday prior to the Hoes Down, Circus Bella will be visiting the Esparto Unified School District to do a district wide performance. Esparto High School’s principal said (of the event last year) “I didn’t think high school kids actually smiled or laughed – until the circus came to town! Kids I haven’t seen crack a smile ALL year laughed, dug out their phones and took pictures, applauded and actually enjoyed themselves!” For more information on becoming a circus sponsor, please email info@hoesdown.org.

A Nighttime Storywalk – Begins at 7:15pm at the Utah Philips Family Stage
Come join us on a magical journey through the farm at sunset on Saturday’s eve. Follow the lanterns and musicians and see our harvest story unfold with a surprise at the river. Great for young and old alike!
