Mountain Circus Arts is a family troupe that has been entertaining audiences large and small for 30 years. We have served clients throughout the southeast from Florida to Virginia and have been based near Asheville North Carolina since 1992.

We offer clowns and street style performers who specialize in juggling, comedy, magic, balloon sculpture, face painting, fire-eating, and more. Funny, skilled and engaging, our entertainers never fail to please, whether at a small family gathering, a company picnic, a mall, or a festival.

All purpose, thematic and seasonal characters are available with options for strolling and stage.

Our clowns have taught in North Carolina public and private schools, helping children and teenagers learn new skills, perform comedy routines with impeccable timing, and gain confidence in themselves.

At gatherings where there are children and adults present for extended periods, teaching clown skits to groups of children for later performance in front of the adults is an excellent activity designed to delight young and old.

Snap training and performance as an interactive act involving many members of the audience is also a wonderful crowd pleaser for any event, from a birthday party to a conference. This act can be produced on stage, in a large room, or in any outdoor space.
