The humble beginnings of Feld Entertainment date back to 1938, when Founder Irvin Feld opened a drugstore in Washington, D.C. One of his store’s best-selling items was records, and eventually he opened a chain of record stores and became a record producer. But Irvin’s big breakthrough came when he engineered the concept of holding concerts in large public arenas that featured entertainers like Frank Sinatra and The Beatles. In 1956, Irvin joined the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus as manager and booking agent, and later bought the circus in 1967. At the time, the circus was struggling, but by moving it from its outdoor setting to large, indoor arenas, Irvin transformed the circus into a profitable enterprise.  Irvin’s son Kenneth Feld joined the company in 1970.  In 1973 they became the first father and son producers of The Greatest Show On Earth.  

The Feld family has produced Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey for over 50 years.  Under the Feld family stewardship, The Greatest Show On Earth was re-invented for modern times.  The shows were filled with visual effects, new technologies and revamped storylines.  The productions were dramatic, awe-inspiring spectacles that revolutionized the modern circus.  Although the final performance of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey took place on May 21, 2017 at The Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, NY, its influences can still be felt in every contemporary Feld Entertainment production to this day.
