WHAT: The Congress of Jugglers has been an annual juggling convention for those on the East Coast for more than 20 years.

Learning is not limited to workshops! If you ask around you'll always find someone willing to teach. FIRE SCHEDULE: ~9PM: FIRE EACH NIGHT! IMPORTANT: - If you would like to host a WORKSHOP, or would like to perform in our SHOW or would like to SELL YOUR WARES please contact the Juggling Club Officers at - leading a workshop doesn't have to be complicated (though you're welcome to teach anything you'd like), many people don't know the basics of what you're best at so we encourage people to host a workshop of all levels, whether it be 3 ball cascade or 5 clubs on a unicycle :) We will be updating as it gets closer to the date, so please come back and check!
