More About Circus McGurkis
WHO ARE WE? Circus McGurkis is an alternative peoples’ fair focusing on peace education and service to the community with special focus on activities for children and families of all ages and types. It features arts, crafts, music, games and ideas which celebrate the creativity and activism that makes our community a more beautiful, loving and just place to live.

It is an expression of belief in the dignity and worth of each person and in the power of love and nonviolence to bring about change.

The Quakers Circus McGurkis Steering Committee includes volunteers from the LUCC Lakewood United Church of Christ and community organizers from the social justice, interfaith and environment sectors who are also dedicated to bringing peace and co-existence to the world.

VOLUNTEERS: If you love Circus McGurkis and want to contribute to the Spirit that makes it happen, please donate your time and money. Please sign up to volunteer. Before the Fair we need help contacting and signing up the booths and putting fliers around. The day of the Fair, we need help with the T-shirts, plants, baked goods and arty stuff at the Circus McGurkis table.

SPONSORSHIPS/DONATIONS Circus McGurkis is operating mostly on what was left over from last year’s donations after we paid all our bills. The 2018 donations will pay for the High School rental, the security staff , publicity and Special events (labyrinth, art table etc) and all the set up art. We will be pairing with some vendors and asking for donations at our Circus McGurkis table. We are suggesting at least $25 from the non-profit groups if possible.
