Joy now

Presented by IQ Credit Union

Kids don't have to leave home to run away with the circus anymore! 

Drums roll, flags wave, a stilt-walker hula-hoops while horns bellow the sounds of New Orleans. It's part marching band, part circus and a whole lot of fun! Members of Portland’s internationally-acclaimed MarchFourth Marching Band inspire the next generation through programs that ignite creative passion and empower youth to rock out on stage and in life.  

Students play music, make costumes, dance, walk on stilts, tumble, sing, juggle, perform at exciting public venues, and learn how to use art as a tool for self-expression and action.

Joy Now offers week-long Summer Camps, workshops and year-round classes for ages 5-18.
