Circus Vargas Honors Heroes in the City of Temecula Special Needs Community


Run away with us to the Circus…even for just one night!  World-famous Circus Vargas has taken their family-oriented show on the road for 46 years, performing for rock stars, movie directors, actresses, and more.  Now, Circus Vargas returns to the City of Temecula on March 16 through 27, 2017.  Circus Vargas has previously performed its Big Top style circus in Temecula and enjoys giving back to the communities honoring the heroes.

Circus Vargas representative, Rolanda Kaiser, is committed to creating a close and collaborative relationship with the City of Temecula.  The Kaisers have been involved with the Circus for many years.  Ms. Kaiser contacted Temecula Councilmember Mike Naggar, who coincidentally recognized her last name.  Mr. Roland Kaiser was the Concessions Manager for Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus (in the 1970’s).  While working there, Mr. Kaiser hired a 15-year-old Mike Naggar to work in concessions and travel with the circus selling toys.  Mr. Kaiser later advanced to Concessions Manager for Circus Vargas and in 1989 became co-owner.  Years later, Councilmember Naggar visited Mr. Kaiser at a Circus Vargas performance in San Diego to thank him for the wonderful memories.  Because of their connection to the Circus and involvement in the special needs community, Councilmember Naggar suggested Circus Vargas honor Temecula’s heroes of the special needs community on Circus Vargas’ Opening Night.

 As a parent of an 11-year-old child with special needs, Ms. Kaiser along with Circus Vargas invite the heroes of the special needs community to the opening night performance in Temecula on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 7:30 pm. The celebrated heroes will include Temecula City Councilmembers, Temecula Community Services Commissioners, Our Nicholas Foundation, Autism Society Inland Empire, Comprehensive Autism Center, and others.  

Please join the City of Temecula in honoring these community heroes.  Circus Vargas performances showcase extremely talented and graceful acrobats, aerialists, and daredevils as “America’s Favorite Big Top Circus” presents “Steam Cirque.”  Circus Vargas will set up its iconic Big Top at Temecula’s Promenade Mall (40820 Winchester Road).

Circus Vargas performances in Temecula are March 16 through March 27, 2017.  Please visit the Circus Vargas website for event times and details at
