Do you know the Circo Atayde Hermanos?
The Circo Atayde Hermanos had its first performance on August 26, 1888 in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, led by Aurelio Atayde Guizar, grandfather of the current generation of businessmen and artists. After living during the Mexican Revolution, they ventured to take their circus show to various places in the Mexican Republic.
The Atayde family decided to embark for Central and South America, on a tour that lasted 20 years, a period in which they went through endless experiences, linked to the itinerary typical of the circus life: audience triumphs and failures, fires , attempted shipwrecks, earthquakes, deaths and births, among others.
In 2004, the Circo Atayde Hermanos was distinguished with the Pista de Oro award, the most important recognition worldwide, granted by the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival. Likewise, their productions have been nominated for the National Auditorium Moons, in the category of Best Family Show on four consecutive occasions (2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007), gaining said recognition in 2010.
At present, the company is considered one of the most recognized national references in the world in circus matters, since it has an identity, roots and history that require continuity to preserve the traditions of the circus in Mexico.
