A Orbiting Human Circus Holiday Event

Julian will be caroling holiday (virtual) gatherings and meet-ups of you, your loved ones, and friends old and new during the weekend of December 18th. You are invited to join us! Come by yourself or invite friends and family to join too. To learn how, email [email protected] and tell us where you are in the world! We’ll email back with instructions on how to reserve a spot, how to invite others, and how to say hello to fellow party-goers before the caroling begins. Gatherings will be very small, and Julian will arrive in the middle of each with a few songs and stories to share, then will visit with you. We can’t wait!
