The International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo, known as Festival International du Cirque de Monte-Carlo in French, is an annual festival held since 1974 in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

The festival includes the awarding of the Clown d'Or (Golden Clown) award as well as awards for other circus skills. A permanent venue, the Chapiteau (circus tent) de Fontvieille, was built especially for this festival. The festival is held in late January or early February.

I've just got back from Monte Carlo but the festival was long gone! I bought a load of postcards and sent them to people, forgetting to keep any for myself.

Sheila, I did something like that in Jamaica. I sent to everyone, but didn't bring any home. Was having so much fun, I forgot! - I did send myself two in the mail for the stamps though. - I wish I had some extra Monte Carlo ones, I'd send you one.
