The 86th annual Hadi Shrine Circus kicks off Thanksgiving Day (November 28th) through Sunday, December 1st at the Ford Center. In recognition of the families’ sacrifice and to honor the service of our local military, the officers and nobility of Hadi Shriners, in conjunction with Townsquare Media are providing members of their immediate family with Exchange tickets to the 86th Annual Hadi Shrine Circus at Ford Center in Evansville starting Thanksgiving Day.  These free Exchange tickets are a $22 value and must be exchanged for a reserved seat ticket for any of the eight performances.

Other family members or close friends who want to attend the circus with military families who have received the complimentary Exchange tickets, may purchase their Exchange tickets, at $18 each, from any Shriner or they can call 812-425-4376 in Evansville, or toll free at 1-800-66-CLOWN outside of Evansville.  These Exchange tickets do not allow admission but must be exchanged for reserved seats for any performance.   The exchange value is $22 and that will provide a reserved seat.

This offer is open to our local military personnel from all branches of the service who are on active duty, currently deployed or recently returned from overseas duty within the last 6 months.

To take advantage of the offer, you will need to bring your military ID to the Hadi Shrine Temple at the corner of Riverside and Walnut in downtown Evansville during our live broadcast on Monday, November 11th from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Present your ID to any Shrine member (the guy's in the red hats), and they'll gladly give you as many tickets as you need for any performance listed below.
