Awards Galore for the World’s Most Glorious and Glamorous Circus

The International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo (The Festival International du Cirque de Monte-Carlo) was created in 1974 by Prince Rainier III of Monaco to recognize and promote circus performers at the pinnacle of their profession. Our pioneering Prince had a lifelong passion for the circus at its very best.

Prince Rainier himself wrote the foreward for the program for the very first Festival held in Monaco, saying “This International Circus Festival was created thinking of the circus community, of this family of underestimated people, so that you, attentive spectators of their efforts and of their work, could know them better, and celebrate them better.” It was the very first true circus festival of its kind ever presented in the Western world – and Prince Rainier III of Monaco was its “architect”.

During the Monaco Festival, a selection of some of the very best circus acts in the world are presented twice to a Jury of circus professionals, journalists, and specialists at the same time as performing for paying audiences. Until 2005 the jury was presided over by the late Prince Rainier III, himself and since 2006, by his daughter, S.A.S. Princess Stéphanie of Monaco. The Jury awards Gold and Silver Clowns, and since 2002, a Bronze Clown, in the form of statuettes originally sculpted by Paule Malé. Other prizes and trophies are awarded by dignitaries, in memory of noble persons, by the City of Monaco, and various corporations, press organizations, associations, national institutions, and individuals.

The awards, called Palmares, are presented as prizes, called Prix, or trophies, called Trophée, or Cups, called Coupe, during a wonderful closing Gala performance attended by the Prince of Monaco, and his family and guests.

In 2006, the Festival staged an extraordinary and fitting tribute to its creator Prince Rainier III of Monaco (who had passed away the previous year), with a five-hour show that gathered the greatest assemblage of Gold and Silver Medalists ever seen. It has been recognized by many as the greatest circus performance ever produced.
