Port of San Diego Hosts “Carnival in the Park: Artistic Performances by Fern Street Circus”

The Port of San Diego invites the public to enjoy a free afternoon of activities and performances by the Fern Street Circus on Saturday, February 17, 2018. The event, “Carnival in the Park: Artistic Performances by Fern Street Circus,” is being provided as a Port of San Diego experience for the entertainment of the community at Cesar Chavez Park, the Port’s waterfront park in Barrio Logan. Activities will be available from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The park is located at 1449 Cesar E. Chavez Parkway, San Diego.

This exciting family-friendly waterfront activation event will feature creative artistic performances by the Fern Street Circus including jugglers, aerialists, acrobats, musicians and more. There will also be interactive workshops on hooping and tightwire, along with carnival games, raffles and free refreshments including cotton candy, hot dogs, agua fresca, prizes, giveaways, and much more.

The February 17 performance is part of the Port’s arts and cultural mission to create a vibrant waterfront with innovative public art, cultural programming, special events, and recreation opportunities that enhance the aesthetic and cultural richness of District tidelands. With a permanent collection of over 70 artworks, combined with more than 30 tenant-commissioned artworks, and a dynamic curatorial plan focused on contemporary public art exhibitions, there is something for everyone to experience around San Diego Bay.

Fern Street Circus serves families and transforms neighborhoods through performance and teaching of circus arts. Professional artists collaborate with learners and their families in neighborhood settings. Circus transcends barriers between people of varying cultures and languages, combines physical and theatrical skills, and merges the magnificent and the everyday. Participants co-create every aspect of the Circus, using their own talents and available resources, working in public locations, creating visible community.
