For over six generations, the Cole family has been a part of the wonder and magic of the circus.


After over 25 years as a distinguished performer performing all over the world, and appearing on the renowned The Ed Sullivan Show, José started his own high-quality circus in the Spring of 1975 and has been honored to bring high quality family entertainment to children and adults of all ages.

The José Cole Circus has proven to be one of the finest circuses in the upper mid-west, and continues to entertain and delight everyone young and old, who attends each of our high quality shows.

In April of 2000 the José Cole Circus celebrated it's silver anniversary!
