Join the Fun at the RIT Spring Juggle-In: A Festival of Juggling, Community, and Giving Back

The RIT Spring Juggle-In is an annual event that has been held since 1977. Every spring, hundreds of students and community members gather in the Clark Gymnasium to participate in juggling competitions, shows, and other fun activities. The event is sponsored by RIT Student Government, RIT Center for Recreation and Intramurals, and the RIT Juggling Club.

In addition to being a fun event for all ages, the RIT Spring Juggle-In also serves as a fundraiser for a good cause. Proceeds from the event benefit the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation, which works to find a cure for the chronic movement disorder.

Wes Peden is a professional juggler who has performed in over 25 countries. He has won awards from the International Juggling Association and the festival Cirque de Demain. Wes Peden learned to juggle at the RIT Spring Juggle-In and has performed his piece “Zebra” at RIT for the first time in the US.

Jeff Peden, his father, is the event coordinator for the RIT Spring Juggle-In.

Overall, the RIT Spring Juggle-In is a beloved tradition that brings together juggling enthusiasts from all over to celebrate their passion while also supporting a worthy cause. If you’re interested in attending the festival or want to buy juggling props, you can visit
