Working hard to keep you safe!

The health and safety of CAC patrons, volunteers and artists are of the utmost importance to us.  At the present time, the following guidelines are in place for all events at the Sailor Circus Arena and the will be at the Circus Sarasota Big Top when it goes up in January.

Based on guidance by the CDC and the initiative of #SafeArtsSarasota, as of September 26, 2021, the following policies will be implemented:

All patrons age 12 and older attending a performance indoors must show either:
A negative PCR COVID-19 test administered by a medical provider/official testing center no earlier than 72 hours before the time of their performance OR
A negative rapid antigen COVID-19 test administered by a medical provider/official testing center no earlier than 24 hours prior to the time of their performance. Home testing kit results will not be accepted for entry.

If patrons prefer, CDC or other official vaccination record showing the patrons are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (at least 14 days since the final dose) may be voluntarily presented at the door as an acceptable alternative to negative COVID-19 test results. Both physical and electronic presentation of documents (e.g., an image on a smartphone) will be accepted. Photo identification must accompany the presentation of all documents.

All patrons age 6 and up, regardless of vaccination or testing status, must wear masks over their nose and mouth at all times while inside the venue.

All seats will be reserved for performances at CAC venues. You must use your reserved seat and may not switch seats without the assistance of the house manager.

Use your email confirmation as your ticket or print your tickets at home to show for venue entry to limit your contact with our ushers and staff. If you are unable to receive your tickets electronically please contact the Box Office at 941.355.9805 and they will print your tickets and hold them at Will Call.

The main Box Office can be accessed by phone 941.355.9805 Monday-Friday, 10am – 5pm.

Sanitizing stations have been installed in both venues and we have optimized the air conditioning system to provide better airflow and filtration. We have installed an air ionization system in the Sailor Circus Arena to eliminate viruses and germs.

Both venues will be disinfected via fogging between all presentations.

Signage has been placed in key locations around the Arena to guide you and help keep you, your fellow patrons, our artists, and our staff safe.

Protocols will be revisited and may be revised based on CDC guidance and the evolving circumstances of the pandemic, including the reduction of screening protocols.
