This summer Flotsam River Circus is floating down the Mississippi River all the way from Minneapolis to Saint Louis. On our way we will give more than 30 free performances in river towns across five states:

Aug 12 – LA CROSSE, WI – Pettibone

Shows are FREE, but we rely on donations to keep afloat.
We are still finalizing some plans, so please keep checking back for location updates!

FLOTSAM! is a troupe of musicians, circus performers and puppeteers traveling on a handmade ramshackle raft, giving free performances in towns along the way. During the tour, the raft is our mode of transit, our home, and our stage. In 2019 thousands came to see us perform as we toured on Oregon’s Willamette River from Corvallis to Portland. We followed this with tours of the waterways around Seattle in 2021, and the Sacramento River and San Francisco Bay in 2022. This summer we are back on the water with our biggest tour yet, six weeks on the Mississippi River from the Twin Cities to St. Louis!
