We are the oldest COAI-chartered Clown Alley.


The mission of Virginia Clown Alley #3, based in Richmond, is to perpetuate and advance the art of clowning through practice and education.

We are the oldest COAI-chartered clown alley in the US, and we welcome new members ages 18 and up (or younger if accompanied by an adult) to attend our monthly meetings.

Our gatherings feature educational programs in props, paradeability, physical comedy, face and costume design, puppetry, balloons, magic, juggling and more. We also offer an 8-week course in beginning practices and principals for new clowns.

Join Us!
