Discount Tickets to The Big Apple Circus in Boston

Discounts to the Big Apple Circus in Boston

The Big Apple Circus is back!

Enjoy The Big Apple Circus in an intimate setting at Assembly Row in Somerville from April 7, 2018 to May 6, 2018.

Tickets for The Big Apple Circus start range from $19 to $100 + service fees through Ticketmaster and prices will range depending on the show date and time.

If you are looking to buy directly through Ticketmaster and have date flexibility, use promo code FAMILY25 for 25% off tickets for shows during Opening Week.

If you are looking for more options, Goldstar currently has discount tickets for the Big Apple Circus starting at $12 + service fees for select dates, although you may not be able to select your exact seats but you will be able to see the section.

Keep in mind there’s a big difference in service fees between the two ticket sources. I was playing around with tickets and prices and found that Ticketmaster charged at least $7+ per ticket in fees + a $5.15 total order processing fee, so for two tickets it would be roughly an extra $20 on top of the regular ticket price.

Goldstar ticket fees vary depending on tickets but the average would be around $4-5 per ticket for fees, so you see the savings in the ticket fees as well. However, the price difference may vary depending on dates and seats you select as I was looking at ticket fees for the cheaper ticket options mostly.

Buying discount tickets through Goldstar is a great option if you are looking for ways to save on ticket costs!

Please let me know in the comments below if you know of any other coupons, promo codes, or deals for the Big Apple Circus in Boston!
