Imagine Circus Brings Unique Entertainment to Asheville Music Festival

Twice a year, our performers have a blast entertaining children and adults at Lake Eden Arts Festival in Black Mountain, North Carolina. In addition to the Saturday parade, roving weekend performances, and Sunshine Stage Circus Show, Imagine Circus now offers a water-side fireshow on Friday night, kicking off the weekend in style!

Fire Dancers Kick-off the Festival Weekend with Lakeside Fire Show

A recent addition to the festival line-up, Imagine Circus’s Friday night fire performance, showcases our mesmerizing performers with live musical accompaniment. Drawing a giant crowd at the lake in 2018, Imagine Circus collaborated with Empire Strikes Brass for a fun-loving, improvisation of big band sound and circus flair. In 2019, we were excited to perform with some of our favorite Asheville drummers. Performances vary from year to year but often include fire fans, dragon staff, fire hoops, and an acrobat duo fire finale.

Imagine Circus Leads Festival Parade with Stilt Walkers and Jugglers

On Saturday, Imagine Circus leads the parade with giant stilt walkers and jugglers. At the end of the parade, we always celebrate with pop-up performances, usually led by our loveable acrobat duo, Katie & Kaci.

Circus Performers Offer Family Friendly Stage Show for Festival-Goers

Following the parade, we move over to the Sunshine Stage and setup for our family-friendly circus show which continues to offer rotating cast of performers. In years past, we have showcased our mesmerizing LED hooper, Ben, our impressive acro duo, Katie and Kaci, and our silly knife-juggler, Tain. This show is not to be missed! Check the LEAF Schedule for all Imagine Circus performances.
