Under the Laws of Delaware. Printed: American Bank Note Co. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, formerly Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Combined Shows also called "The Greatest Show on Earth." Was an American circus that was the best-known traveling circus in the US in the 20th and early 21st centuries. Operations ceased in 2017. It and its predecessor shows ran from 1871 to 2017. Known as Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Combined Shows, the circus started in 1919 when the Barnum & Bailey's Greatest Show on Earth, a circus created by P. T. Barnum and James Anthony Bailey, was merged with the Ringling Bros. World's Greatest Shows. Ringling brothers had purchased Barnum & Bailey Ltd. following Bailey's death in 1906, but ran the circuses separately until they were merged in 1919. With weakening attendance, many animal rights protests, and high operating costs, the circus performed their final show on May 21, 2017 at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum and closed after 146 years.
