If you would like to support us come to the show, buy a t-shirt or donate at the front desk during the festival.


For those wishing to juggle knives, chain saws, flaming kittens, or anything that might damage the expansive floors of our venue, space will be provided on Lake Mendota. However, as this winter has been unusually warm, you may need to bring your own raft. Don't drop.

Inside there will be juggling, workshops, catching, demos, dropping, competitions, pickups, vendors, excuses, parties, apologies, a raffle, and relief from wind chill low enough to shrivel silicone.

Another year, and still no therbligs will be available at the fest. We actually had a shipment of them en route, but Somali pirates have seized the vessel and the Madison Area Jugglers just don't have the budget to pay the ransom. Sorry.
