Picklewater Industries was created in an effort to celebrate and preserve the Bay Area tradition of the New American Circus. We create theatrical circus productions for staged shows, community benefits, corporate clients, parties, conferences and festivals. To name a few of our productions: the annual Picklewater Circus Festival and the Picklewater Clown Cabaret, an ongoing arts benefit program. We produce everything from full traditional one ring circus shows for the public down to individual stage acts and large scale ambient walk around performers for private events, and have been doing so for over a decade.
