Monte-Carlo's International Circus Festival

Monaco has issued a stamp to celebrate the International Circus Festival in Monte Carlo. H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie loves the circus. She is the organizer and president of Monte-Carlo's International Circus Festival, the biggest in the world. The 37th in the series will take place from 17th to 27th January 2013 and will feature the world's best performers, including a breath taking trapeze act.


The International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo, known as Festival International du Cirque de Monte-Carlo in French, is an annual festival held since 1974 in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

The festival includes the awarding of the Clown d'Or (Golden Clown) award as well as awards for other circus skills. A permanent venue, the Chapiteau (circus tent) de Fontvieille, was built especially for this festival. The festival is held in late January or early February.

In 2012, the 36th festival was opened by Prince Albert II and his sister Princess Stéphanie of Monaco, who is the festival's patron.
