Support the circus - Invite a family

Your contribution will provide show tickets to local families, keep the artists working until tourism resumes and support free education at Phare Ponleu Selpak non-profit school. Put smiles back on faces of Cambodians facing difficult times. The show must go on!

Since  2013, Phare Circus became Siem Reap's top-rated entertainment. The artists performed nightly in a circus big top filled to capacity. This came to a screeching halt in March 2020. The COVID pandemic closed borders and tourism evaporated. Entertainment venues were ordered closed for health and safety.  The artists weren't able to perform since 17 March 2020. The circus has no income. Providing a stipend to the artists during the pandemic is at risk.

Phare Circus has resumed weekend performances to put the artists back to work, boost morale, support the community and revive hope for brighter days. Domestic demand is not strong enough to support the costs, so this fundraising campaign was launched to make up the difference.

This campaign is absolutely essential to keep the weekend performances going until international tourism returns to pre-pandemic levels. Your support is greatly appreciated.
