Circus Clip Art

Updated on October 9, 2014

Make Crafts with Circus Clip Art

As a child, I have to admit, I thought about joining the circus. I mean, I would get to hang around clowns and animals all day. Slip under the big top when it rained. Eat lunch with the Fat Lady and maybe a two-headed cow. Watch amazing feats like tight walking and juggling. It was very intriguing to me.

But alas, I grew up and did not join the circus. If you had similar aspirations or just love the fun graphics related to all things circus, check out this free circus clip art.

I've added all sorts of fun circus and carnival-related images here. Some of the circus clip art is vintage; some is new. It's all fun and happy!

      Great stuff. You sure made the circus sound like a great place to run away to.

      @Deadicated LM: Wow, I didn't see that one (but love the show)! That was very cool that they returned some of the money.

      I love Circus Art; did you see the show American Pickers. They picked 2 huge circus banners from a guy with an amusement park that was closed. The guy who sold it to them sold them, sold them for a very low price; the Pickers resold them for around $10,000., so they went back and gave the guy more money because the guy was trying to raise money to reopen the park (it was a nice story).

      The last time I was at a circus was at least 25 years ago, but I bet if I went to one today, the feelings would be the same. :) And the food too....oh my! :)

      It's not the same seeing a circus on TV. I wonder how many children actually get to see a circus anymore?
