August 03, 2017 10:50 PM

A non-profit circus based in the Twin Cities received a prestigious award Thursday evening.

Circus Juventas received the Circo-Pedia Award, making it the first American circus act to receive the award.


Circus Juventas had recently been selected to perform for two weeks at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C.

"For Circus Juventas, next to being invited to perform for two weeks at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, this is probably the largest honor we can receive," co-founder Dan Butler said.
