Postponed until May 7th – 10th
Official statement from the India Shrine illustrious potentate, John Thompson.
The Oklahoma City Shriners have been entertaining our loyal supporters with the Shrine Circus for the past 76 years. For the first time, due to the corona virus, we have had to make some really tough decisions surrounding our show.
For the last few weeks we have been monitoring this situation closely. We have been evaluating facts from government officials and health officials on all levels.
As Shriners, our entire mission is to get kids well. The most important thing to us is the health of the people in our community. Because of this, and the recent developments and recommendations, we have decided to postpone our circus until May 7th – 10th..
We are very aware that this decision will bring mixed reviews from our supporters. Please understand that this decision was carefully weighed by our committee. During this time where we do not have all the information, and do not know what can transpire between now and the time of the Circus, we feel that we have to air on the side of caution to protect you and your family.
We hope you understand our decision, and we look forward to seeing everyone in May. For all our supporters who have won tickets or already purchased tickets. They will be good for the new show dates. If you have any concerns or if the new dates do not work for you, please call the Shrine office at 405-947-3311. Please be patient and understand that this has come as a huge surprise and we are doing our best to accommodate everyone. We will be committed to making sure all of our loyal supporters are happy.
Thank you all for your support and understanding during this time.
