29 Exciting Vintage Circus Fonts You’ll Absolutely Love

Believe it or not, people’s love of the circus has lasted more than 200 years. Although technically it isn’t dead, it’s not as popular as it once was. However, nothing elicits dreamy nostalgia more than thoughts of nimble trapeze artists, brave lion tamers, the sweet tastes of cotton candy, and the sounds of the old calliope.

Designers and artists everywhere have taken inspiration from the child-like wonders of the circus. If you were lucky in your childhood, perhaps you have been taken to one as well. In earlier years, menageries were the main act. People enjoyed seeing wild animals that they wouldn’t have otherwise seen in public before. Lions, tigers, panthers, and leopards were added as shows became more popular.

During the 50’s, also known as the Golden Age of the circus, more outrageous feats were added to draw in crowds. It was during this time that the fun sounds of the calliope was born, as well as the beloved “Fairy Floss” – better known today as cotton candy. Want to add the magic of the circus into your artworks? Use these cool circus fonts today.
