Two hundred and one registered jugglers attended the 41st Annual Groundhog Day Jugglers Festival, held January 26-28 at the Yaarab Shrine Center less than a mile from the Fox Theater near downtown Atlanta. The festival was moved forward a week because Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta made it impossible to get our space at the correct time (February 1-3) this year. The Center has been upgraded recently, with better lighting, replacement back doors, and auto-flush urinals in the men's room. The lights were particularly welcome.
About 25 jugglers met for World Juggling Day on Saturday, June 16, 2018 from 6-8 PM in Atlanta on the BeltLine greenspace on the east side of Ponce City Market. We juggled, unicyled, entertained passersby and taught anyone willing to try juggling! See the video.
Winners of the coveted PHIL award this year were Chuck Clark, Houston Odum and Brian Koenig.
An article with photos from our festival was in the Hometown News Atlanta Ponce Press magazine for March 2018.
