Circus fonts

Circus fonts are a great way to add a sense of fun, happiness, and laughter to your typography designs. Clowns, high-flying trapeze acts, magicians who pull rabbits out of their magic hats, the sweet taste of cotton candy, and fierce lions: all elements that elicit nostalgic memories of the circus. Just like a magical night at the festival, these typefaces combine mysterious colors and light effects into their designs. The decorative fonts in this collection are perfect for children's books, logos, flyers, and banners. This collection of bright and happy fonts add a modern twist to a classical design.

This typeface originated in the 19th century, right when the circus was rising to fame in the world of entertainment. These festive shows needed a way to catch the attention of potential customers, so designers came up with the circus poster we all know and love today. The designers back then made these posters using woodcut blocks, re-using these blocks time and time again to save money. Thatís the reason why circus fonts gained such a distinctive name. Later down the line, these woodcut-type posters transformed into a far more illustrative design. All of the fonts below will look great in any retro graphics, paired with worn textures to recreate that vintage feel.
