Looking for a family fun musical adventure this coming June 17th and 18th? Look no further, the Circus Hall of Fame (in conjunction with the Howard Steamboat Museum) are hosting a most unique opportunity on their grounds (located on the winter quarters of the Hagenbeck and Wallace Circus) in historic Peru, IN.

The Circus Calliope and Mechanical Music Festival will be held on Friday the 17th of June and Saturday the 18th of June 2022.

At the festival you will see and hear some very special music. Ranging from steam calliopes (the legendary DELTA QUEEN calliope will be playing for the first time in 10 years), to Band Organs this will be a feast for the ears. In addition, there will be many speakers on the subject of the instruments, and multiple food vendors. The Circus Museum on site will be open as well to experience all they have to offer at the Circus Hall of Fame.

The historic Howard Steamboat Museum Cozatt Air Calliope will be present and playing as well.

In case you were wondering, each instrument will have a schedule and none will play simultaneously!

Visit the Circus Hall of Fame Website for more as this festival develops. This will be the first time in history that this many steam calliopes will be in one place and playing together. One for the record books for sure!

Be sure to put this one on your calendar now!
