After six years of great success, the International Circus Elefant d'Or Festival arrives in the city full of novelties, surprises and performances that are going to place Girona in the world centre of the circus. This festival is one of the five biggest circus events around the world. Like festivals such as those in Monte Carlo, Moscow or Zhuhai (China), Elefant d'Or offers a window to the world for the promotion and diffusion of circus arts in capital letters.
At the International Circus Elefant d'Or Festival 88 artists from 14 countries will compete in 24 unprecedented attractions in Europe in front of an international jury made up of 15 important directors and circus experts from all over the world. The two semi-finals and the final will be held in 14 performances under the Big Tent 360º of total visibility, with capacity for 2,206 spectators.
The seventh edition of Elefant d'Or promises to be the most spectacular in the history of the event for various reasons:
- A commemorative edition of the 250th anniversary of the birth of the circus.
- The outstanding support and involvement of the most prestigious international companies that entrust Elefant d' Or with the premiere of their new productions: the prestigious state circuses of Russia, Belarus, Vietnam, China and North Korea have already confirmed their presence at the Festival with innovative groups of acrobats.
- Participation of new disciplines and new countries that until now have never participated in the Festival such as Moldova, Australia or Finland.
- The AVE-TGV with arrival in the city centre and the proximity of Girona airport is increasing the expectations of a greater arrival of spectators from outside Catalonia. In particular, the new lines connecting the airport with Moscow and St. Petersburg will make it possible for Russian amateurs and professionals to travel as spectators to the new edition.
With the International Circus Elefant d'Or Festival, Girona enters the league of the circus capitals of the world on the international map of the great events of the fascinating world of the track.
