Mall Specialists for any event

Entertaining guests in line to see Santa, walking around the mall as Uncle Sam during Independence Day events, Pirate Day, leading Easter Bunny parades, attracting guests to new store openings and anything a Marketing Director might dream up. We've been performing at Major Malls and sports venues throughout the Southeast for forty years. The famous “Papa Elf” brought his Christmas magic to Cherokee's Santa's Land Amusement Park in 93-94 and is still remembered by the occasional mall shopper to this day.

Most holiday seasons find Papa in Atlanta at the Braves park and at regional malls around the area. 


The Mountain Circus Arts family and supporting casts and crews, have been bringing delightful, memory making entertainment to audiences throughout the southeast since 1983. After almost a decade in Jacksonville, Florida as "Clowns at Large", the troupe relocated to WNC in 1992. 

We have established a legendary reputation with generations of families and decades long relationships with entertainment, educational and corporate clients.
