The Circus Arcanus was a travelling wizarding circus and freak show owned by Skender that boasted the "world's most complete congress of human oddities." It consisted of a daily street parade, which the organisers promised was "worth coming miles to see," and would amuse both young and old.
The Circus Arcanus visited New York for two weeks in 1926, starting on 29 November, and ending with a "spectacular" final show at 8PM on 13 December. Two parades were held on Friday 3 December, at 3:15PM and 8PM, respectively.
The Circus Arcanus was slated to travel to somewhere in Europe after its stop in New York. In 1927, the circus performed in Paris on Rue Claudel and Rue Girardon, and was attended by many of those in the wizarding communities.
- Borys the Brute, "perfidious" hypnotist
- The Infant Demonic, the "greatest freak of nature ever placed on exhibition"
- Snake Girl, a Maledictus named Nagini
- Nigelle le Narcissique, a Homo amphibia, who "freakishly devours [her] own tail whilst singing popular Gaelic folk songs"
- The 2-Headed Baby, first performance in America in late 1926.
- Obscurial Credence Barebone joined the circus in late 1926 or early 1927.
