Calendar of Events

Here is a partial listing of regional and national conventions and other events that should be of interest to clowns. I will update the information and add more events as I learn about them. If you feel there is a clown-related event that should be included, let me know. Note: Dates and times may change, check with each event’s website for latest information.

Why go to a convention?

Conventions are a great place to meet other professional clowns, attend workshops, enter competitions, and try out the latest items from their dealers. I was hesitant to go to a convention when I was first getting started. I didn’t think I knew enough, but I soon discovered that they are a great place for new clowns. If you are looking to branch out into other directions or want more depth in a specific area, check out conventions for magicians, face painters, balloon twisters, puppeteers, and other entertainers.
