This year the Northwest Arkansas Juggling club is teaming up with the Razorback Jugglers in hopes of making our festival bigger and better than ever before!

Friday March 11th the juggling will begin at the University of Arkansas HPER Building in gym 1 from 3PM-11PM. This gym boasts a 35' ceiling with plenty of square footage for juggling. During this time there will be some juggling combat, club passing, FREE snacks, and a FREE show at 8PM.

Saturday the juggling will be at the Jones Center for Families. The Jones Center is open from 8AM-10PM. Come take advantage of the Jones Center's 50' foot ceiling at the basketball gym and indoor track with plenty of square footage for unicycles, and huge passing patterns. If you want cool off from juggling, walk down the hall to the Jones Center's Olympic sized ice skating rink and skate for $2, or you can go to the other side of the gym, go swimming for $2, and slide down the giant 30' slide in the indoor pool. Saturday there will be numerous juggling games, unicycle races, some prizes, a raffle, and a show in the chapel. Then on Sunday we'll juggle some more, unicycle, and practice other circus arts as we see our juggling friends off. The entire weekend is FREE and open to the public.

In addition to all the juggling in the gym on Friday and Saturday, we will have after hours juggling and Sunday juggling at a local jugglers' juggling warehouse. Also, we have crash space available if you're traveling from out of town and need a place to crash (just let us know before hand via email or facebook if you need a place to crash (the crash space is quickly filling up!). Please email us for more information. Thanks! We hope to see YOU March 11-13 at our completely FREE juggling festival!
