Giveaway: win four passes to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Five winners!

January 19, 2012

True story: I was in the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus once. It was when I was four years old, and they were premiering the Living Unicorn. I’ll have to tell you about it sometime, but my job was basically to ride around the rings in a car that was being chased by clowns. It was a traumatizing fun experience. I’m still not really big on clowns…

But, I’ve always loved the circus, and now my daughters do too!

Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus is bringing its Barnum Bash show to the Knoxville Civic Coliseum March 1 – 4, and I’m so pleased that the lovely folks at Feld Entertainment have given me passes to give away to you all! First, here’s a deal for everyone:

You can currently purchase tickets at KnoxvilleTickets.com or by phone at 865-656-4444 or 877-995-9961. Mention code FAMILY for $5 off! (Not valid on VIP, VIP Floor or front row seating.)

TICKET PRICES:
$60.00 (Front Row)
$55.00 (VIP Floor)
$35.00 (VIP)
$25.00
$20.00
$15.00

Dates/Times:

Thursday March 1 and Friday March 2 at 7:00PM

Saturday March 3 and Sunday March 4 at 1:00PM and 5:00PM

Now for the giveaway…

I am giving away five sets of four passes each; these passes can be exchanged for tickets at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum box office, and are good for all reserved seating tickets except for front row and VIP tickets. You’ll want to redeem passes as early as possible to get the best seats, which is why I’m doing this giveaway so early! Here’s how to win one of the five sets of passes:

Required Entry:

Leave a comment on this post and let me know if you’ve ever been to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. That’s it! (If you’re reading this on Facebook/Twitter hop on over to thriftychristy.com)

Additional Optional Entries:

You can do each of the following things for an additional entry in the giveaway. You can only do each of these once, for a possible total of 5 entries. Please leave a separate comment for each method of entry.

This giveaway ends at midnight EST on Thursday January 26. I will choose a winner on Friday January 27 using random.org and will contact them via email. Giveaway open to US readers only.

Disclosure: I received passes to the circus for my family plus an additional 20 passes from Feld Entertainment to share with my readers. All opinions are my own.

    Hi Christie! Nice to see your blog! I remember as a child really wanting to see the Ringling Brother’s Circus, but alas, my family couldn’t afford it. As an adult, I’m not big on circuses (clowns freak me out a bit, too 🙂 ), I will gladly give away tickets to someone who might like them (perhaps another ballet mom).

    Consider me a “reader” now :).

    Hello Christy! Yes, I have taken Jaydan to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus a few years ago. He and Adriel have only been to the Universoul Circus (sort of like the black people circus). You must check it out! http://www.facebook.com/universoulcircus

    I was able to go as a child and as a teenager, I popped popcorn 40+ hours a week for 3 weeks before the circus arrived. Not sure of the current policy, but back then popcorn had a 30 day shelf life for these events!
