I love Circus Vargas and I especially love when they come set up camp right here in Burbank. They have the perfect spot, nestled neatly in the space on Front street right at the Burbank Blvd/5 freeway exit. I mean, how lucky are we!?
Circus Vargas is an animal-free circus and showcases some crazy talented people. What I love about this traveling circus, is the fact that the ladies selling you tickets are the ones on the trapeze. The guy helping you to your seat, might be the guy juggling later in the show. It’s as small town as a circus can get!
The History Of Circus Vargas
In 1969, Clifford E. Vargas fulfilled his childhood dream when he raised the canvas of what was to become “Americas favorite Big Top Circus! Having been a lifelong circus spectator and fan, Mr. Vargas believed he could bring back the glamour, thrills and heart-pounding excitement of the authentic old-time circus. He was adamant that a circus wasn’t a circus if it wasn’t under the big top and wanted to make sure that every generation would have the opportunity to experience its magic first hand. He was dedicated and determined to make the name Circus Vargas synonymous with family entertainment and continued to do so until his untimely death in 1989.
With the future of the show in jeopardy, Roland Kaiser and Joseph Muscarello, both longtime friends of Mr. Vargas and management executives with the show, joined forces and took over the reins at Circus Vargas. As co-producers their combined talents proved to be a triumphant union. Together they collaborated successfully for almost fifteen years, investing, sacrificing risking, modifying, transforming and ultimately saving the show that had meant so much to so many. They successfully continued the Circus Vargas legacy until their retirement in 2003, producing a show that even a hard to please showman like Clifford Vargas himself would be proud of.
Clifford Vargas often traveled the world in search new and exciting acts. In the late 1980’s on a trip to South America he stumbled upon The “FLYING TABARES” of Argentina! When he saw brothers Nelson and Alberto perform their trapeze act to standing ovations, he wasted no time in hiring them, bringing them to the United States to perform in his 20th anniversary edition of Circus Vargas. Throughout different times in their career, the Tabares also worked under the management of Mr. Kaiser & Muscarello.
When they heard the owners would retire and the big top would come down for good , they seized the opportunity to take over the circus that had jump-started their career, and had always held a special place in their hearts. In 2005, Nelson & Katya Quiroga-Tabares proudly became United States citizens, and founded their production company, Tabares Entertainment, Inc. They now proudly present CIRCUS VARGAS, America’s Favorite Big Top Circus!
