Welcome to WikiProject Circus!

A group of Wikipedians have formed this collaborative group that is dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage and organization of circuses and circus related topics. This page along with the corresponding subpages contain suggestions and various resources to improve and organize these articles. It is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of Wikipedians interested in this topic. If you would like to help, please add your name to the list of participants, inquire on the talk page where help may be needed or see the to-do list below.
