What is it?
The RIT Spring Juggle-In is one of the longest running juggling festivals in North America. Jugglers from around the nation come to join in the fun, with over 500 attendees expected this year. The capstone event of the Juggle-In is always the Public Show on Saturday night, which features some of the best jugglers in the world. In addition to great fun, this event also acts as a fundraiser for The Dystonia Medical Research Foundation, which will receive a portion of all profits.
How much is it?
There is no cost to enter the gym and juggle for the weekend! Thank to the generous sponsors like RIT Student Government, and the vendors who donate to the raffle.
The only thing that does cost money is the Public Show and tickets for our Raffle.
Who can come?
All are welcome to attend, whether you want to juggle or just to watch our three public shows as well as the open juggling in the gym. There will be activities for jugglers of all levels, whether you can juggle seven balls or just one. If you're planning on coming, you can stay in touch with us on Facebook or /r/juggling. If you can't come, never fear! You can watch live video of the festival online as it happens.
