Festival FAQ

What do you do at a juggling festival?

We juggle. Juggling is fun; we can do it all day. In addition to juggling, there will almost certainly be some or all of the following.

  • Diabolo manipulation
  • Devil Stick manipulation
  • Contact Juggling
  • Hooping
  • Balancing
  • Yo-yoing
  • Other fun stuff

I don't know how to juggle.

No problem! We have workshops, and we all like sharing what we do. The basics of juggling (or of any of these skills) can easily be picked up in a day.

If you don't know how to juggle or think you are rusty, stop by the front desk and we'll connect you with someone who will be happy to teach you.

I need some new juggling clubs; will I find any at the festival?

There will be vendors selling juggling props and lots of other fun stuff. In addition, you'll find most festival attendees are happy to let you try out their props and "talk shop" to help you figure out exactly what it is you want.

What about unicycling?

To protect the surface of the indoor soccer field at the Wide World Sports Center, we ask people not to unicycle on it. It isn't very good for unicycling anyway. But bring that uni anyway; if the weather's good, you might be able to use it outside in the parking lot.

Should I bring my kids with me?

Certainly. Unfortunately, we can't supply child-care service, so you'll have to stay with them if they're not old enough to be left alone, and care must to be taken to keep them away from flying objects.

Also note that all attendees need to sign a waiver, and that for attendees under 18, a parent or legal guardian must sign for them.

Do you need any help?

Help is always appreciated. This festival is organized and run by volunteers to celebrate their love of juggling. If you want to help, your assitance will be appreciated.

Want to run a workshop? Have some other idea for the fest? Or could you just help out with some chores?--we also need people to clean up after each day, to make some signs, and to do other odd jobs....
