Who We Are

We are the Medinah Shrine Clowns. We bring "miles of smiles to a child" whether it be by walking in a parade, entertaining at a picnic or party, or performing at a school.

We are skilled at making balloon animals, juggling, magic, puppetry and general silliness. We have appeared in parades, corporate events, schools, picnics, charitable events. Wherever there are people, we are right at home. Contact us and ask how we can help make your special event even more special.

We meet at Medinah Shrine Center every fourth Tuesday of the month for dinner at 6:30pm and a meeting at 7:15. Ladies are always welcome.

Center Ring at Medinah

On behalf of the Medinah Shrine Clowns and Funny’s Honeys, as well as the officers and board members of the Great Lakes Shrine Clown Unit Association, it gives me great pleasure to invite you, the members of the GLSCUA and your Ladies to Medinah Shrine in Addison, Illinois for the 2018 spring convention, entitled, “Center Ring at Medinah”.

The clowns and ladies of Medinah have been working hard and pulling out all stops to welcome you and your lady. There will be fun, fellowship, opportunities to learn and teach and of course to entertain. I would like to add that our Funny’s Honeys are putting together plans for a hospitality room that you will not want to leave. Did I mention Medinah’s Catering With Elegance is catering our Black Camel luncheon, Friday night fish fry and awards banquet? You will not be disappointed.

Medinah Clowns Donate to Chicago Shriners Hospital for Children

In December of 2015, Medinah Clown Unit donated $5,000 to the Shriners Hospital for Children in Chicago to help pay for the installation of cabinets in the recreational therapy room. Below are some photos of the project that was completed in June of 2016.
