White Tigers!

THE CARDEN ELEPHANTS

Asking an 8,000 pound elephant to stand up on its hind legs and put all of its weight on the lower abdomen is probably not the easiest task in the world. These Asian Elephants are highly intelligent and will learn quickly. However, the hardest part about training is the muscle building program and regimen that they must go through. Much like an athlete or weight lifter, an elephant must learn and develop the proper muscles needed to do a certain trick. For example, an elephant could learn in a week (intelligence wise) how to stand on his hind legs, but to do it safely it could take 1-2 months. All of the elephants were born in the wild and have been trained since they were about 3 years old. Their average age is about 40 years old and they can live up to 80 years in captivity but only about 45-50 years in the wild.

Third Party Ticket Sellers

For the last 75 years, Elf Khurafeh Shrine has taken pride in providing our communities with a top-notch circus! Due to our efforts, many adults and children have been entertained by death defying stunts, stunning aeiral acts, funny clowns, and many different types of animals. While the animals may be cause for a different conversation, there's no denying that a child at the circus has an amazing opportunity to not only see elephants, tigers, camels, ponies, and more, but that same child can pet, and even ride on the elephants, camels, or ponies.

One key to this unparelleled access to these animals, aerialists, and amazing daredevils has been the Shrine's ability to keep ticket prices affordable. We work hard with both venues, as well as our circus promoter to keep prices down so all children get a chance to see the circus.

Recently however, the Shrine Circus found that third-party ticket sellers were also trying to make some money on our circuses. These sellers purchase tickets for the purpose of reselling them at a marked up price in order to make a profit for themselves. They will try to scare customers into paying top dollar by saying the circus is almost sold out. Or they will offer "deals" like VIP seating, or package deals including food, beverages, and toys. ABC 12 (WJRT) did a quick investigation during our 2017 circuses and found more than one website offering tickets for over $150 per ticket. Many were claiming that there were "only eight tickets left." The reality is that these third party sellers most likely only purchased eight tickets, and were promoting the fact that they only had eight left. For a better explanation on third party sellers, visit http://familyarena.com/how-ticket-brokers-are-scalping-the-cheap-seats/

In light of this discovery, Elf Khurafeh Shrine encourages anyone wishing to enjoy our circus to purchase tickets through one of four methods.

  • Electronically - Tickets are available on our website (www.shrinecircus2018.com) or our sister website (www.shrinecircustickets.com)
  • At the Box Office - Tickets are available through Ticketmaster at either the Dort Federal Event Center or the Dow Event Center.
  • Directly from the Shrine - Tickets can be purchased from any Shriner, or from our office at 4240 W. Wilson Rd, Clio, MI.
  • Shriners selling at the Malls - Shriners will be selling tickets at the Genesee Valley Mall in Flint and the Fashion Square Mall in Saginaw on January 4th - 6th, 2018

Please remember, if you are paying more that $30.00 for Reserved tickets, $18.00 for General Admission adult tickets or $12.00 for General Admission children's tickets, you are overpaying*.

* Price mentioned does not include Ticketmaster processing fees, or processing fees when buying electronically from this website or our sister site. Please see Ticketmaster to inquire about their fees. Purchases online from www.shrinecircustickets.com will be charged a 3% credit card processing fee on all credit card purchases. Purchases at either mall done with credit card or debit card will also be charged a 3% fee.

Information Regarding the Care of Circus Animals

Caring for the elephants

The Super Shrine Circus/Carden Circus International is committed to the exemplary care and treatment of animals. We believe in animal/human relationships built on respect, trust, affection and uncompromising care.

Our training methods are based on reinforcement in the form of food rewards and words of praise. Verbal or physical abuse and the withholding of food or water are strictly prohibited. We strongly oppose ANY form of cruelty or mistreatment of animals.

Our animal care professionals believe that a positive, healthy environment is the only acceptable and successful method of working with animals. The animals are fed, watered, groomed and cleaned daily. The entire stable area, including individual stalls, is cleaned regularly. The manure is removed and fresh bedding is provided. Our staff consists of animal experts who devote their lives to living, working with and caring for animals. They meet the animals’ physical needs with nutritious foods and regular veterinary attention and their mental needs by providing a stimulating environment.

The Super Shrine Circus/Carden Circus International understands and supports all efforts to monitor and regulate the treatment of animals. These regulations are designed to protect the well-being of all animals. Because animals are an integral part of our presentation, we work closely with local, state and federal agencies to ensure the highest standards of animal care. We continue to meet or exceed all federal animal welfare standards set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) under the Animal Welfare Act, in all aspects of animal care and safety.

​We are committed to our animal performers every day of the year. There are no days off for animal care. It is a 7-days-a-week, 24-hours-a-day, 365-days-a-year responsibility that we take very seriously.
