Festivals

Every year you can find a lot of festivals and juggling events. Very good change to meet other (contact) jugglers. Below you see some links to websites which give you the most information.

International Jugglers' Association

 

The Juggling Edge

 

The four largest conventions

The most well attended convention is the European Juggling Convention (EJC), along with the British Juggling Convention (BJC), the Israeli Juggling Convention (IJC), and the IJA Festival (IJA), and they all take place annually.

The BJC occurs every spring, the IJC is staged over Passover, and the EJC and IJA are summer festivals. The BJC takes place in Britain, the IJC in Israel, and the EJC in Europe, as one might expect, but the IJA Festival has so far proven to be an exclusively North American event, despite it being the principal date in the calendar of the International Jugglers' Association.
