*ATTN: These have ended for 2020, check back mid-April for Summer 2021*


Summer 2021 "We MUST Breathe" Circus & Arts Pop Ups are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.


We are honored to announce that we will be hosting our 2nd Annual FREE Summer We MUST Breathe Circus & Arts Pop Ups in Minneapolis for 2021.

Tentative Dates Include...

Saturday June 19th (which will also mark our 1 year of Incorporation with the state!), Wednesday June 30th, Saturday July 10th and 24th, and Wednesday August 4th and Saturday August 21st

Saturdays are planned for 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Wednesdays are planned for 4:00-6:00pm

Soon we will be announcing locations for Summer 2021!

Important Attendance Considerations:

  • All Pop Ups are OUTDOORS, be sure to check the weather and plan accordingly for attire

    • This also means Pop Ups could be cancelled due to weather or social climate​

  • Partake in space to laugh, commune, and radiate joy

  • Bring a blanket or mat to sit and enjoy the activities and performances

  • You can bring your own snacks and Non-Alcoholic Drinks, however spend a few minutes cleaning up behind yourself/your group

  • Maintain physical distance between your groups and any other groups at the event

  • Wear a face covering throughout until the mask ordinance of the state of Minnesota and city of Minneapolis has been lifted

We plan to feature artistry in Aerial Arts, Stilt walking, Balloon making, bubbles, painting artists, and perhaps an occasional live DJ, vocalist or storyteller
