Lend your talents to a vintage night at the circus!

Neighbor in Need is planning our annual major fundraiser gala event. This year’s theme is “vintage circus”. 


The Greatest Show in EAV!


Join us under the Big Top for the Neighbor in Need Circus Gala

How can you help?

We are looking for any performers who are willing to donate their time to our event. Fire breathers, fire spinners, flow artists, contortionists, strong man, dancing bear, fortune teller, tarot card reader, belly dancer, etc. We are also looking for bands anything from steampunk to bluegrass, rockabilly to country.   Sorry we love clowns, but have opted to not include any in our program.  Mimes are welcome.

Our tentative schedule for the night looks like this:

  • 7pm VIP with band - 40 minutes.
  • 7:40pm the kick- off of circus performers each performing for 3-5 minutes each 
  • 8pm General Admission allowed to enter.  At that point the performers will then rotate out in 30 minute segments (possibly 1-2 at a time around the venue).
  • 8-9 rotation of performers (15 - 30 minute sets)
  • 9-9:30 band plays set
  • 9-10:15 rotation of performers (15 - 30 minute sets)
  • 10:15-10:30 announce raffle winners
  • 10:30-10:50 finale of performers (5-7 minutes each)

What's the plan?

The date is Saturday October 21. Location is Flat Shoals Farm, Flat Shoals and Ormewood Avenue.

General Admission

$50.00. Package includes three drinks, beer, wine, or cocktail, and unlimited food. Entry at 8 p.m. Music, Vintage Circus Performance, and more.

VIP Admission
