Currently there are two circuses operating in Belarus: the Belarusian State Circus in Minsk and the Gomel State Circus.

The Belarusian State Circus is the only circus in the world that is located on the central avenue of the country capital.
The Belarusian State Circus creates its own performances with the national group BelStars touring around the world. The circus organizes tours of international circus groups in Minsk. The artists of the Belarusian State Circus received awards at a number of prestigious international contests and festivals.

The Gomel State Circus is also located in the city center and is one of the recognizable symbols of Gomel.
The circus season lasts from September to May during which the repertoire has five or six programs formed mainly by performances of guest artists and ensembles.
