Welcome to this week’s FreeFontFile.  We have a theme for this week.  I’ve been working on a circus-themed print project and there are a lot of really good free fonts that work for a circus design.  So we present a trio of Circus fonts, perfect for display headlines.  Enjoy!


What list of circus fonts can you have without a font actually called Circus? Well, it’s a traditional retro font. This one is just a display font. There aren’t any lowercase letters or numbers, so it can be a bit limiting, but if you just have letters and need a great Circus feeling to your text, you can’t go wrong here.

Coney Island

Coney Island.  It’s tasty.  Like a coney dog.  Just a little bit of fun on the top.  Curvy and fun.  Again, display font without any lowercase letters.  We do, however, have numbers here.

Carnivalee Freakshow

Welcome to the freakshow.  This is a great carnival font.  On a close inspection, you’ll see some nice distressing in the font, giving it a bit of a grungy feel.  Kind of like a rubber stamp.  “Lowercase” letters are smaller versions of the uppercase letters.

There’s our ode to the circus.  If you ever find a need for a trip back into the early 1900’s, this is a good place to start.  Have fun with these and we’ll see you all next week with a new set.
