The Humboldt Circus is a student run club through Humboldt State University in Arcata, California. While a majority of their full production shows occur on the campus, they do many events not affiliated with the school as well. The Humboldt Circus was initially founded by Shea Freelove in 2000. There have been many performances organized since its conception. Typically, each fall show is adult themed, and each spring show is an all-ages show. The Humboldt Circus also hosts workshops in the community and on the HSU campus in which various circus skills are taught. They also travel throughout California and surrounding states, performing at and attending various juggling festivals.
