The Board of Directors decided to cancel our 2021 juggling festival at the Yaarab Shrine Center because of the pandemic.
Our extended juggling family was invited to send remote "love letters".
See these video "love letters" along with a timelapse video of the 40th Annual Groundhog Day Juggler's Festival from 2018.

We were featured on the Channel 11 TV show Atlanta & Company on June 14, 2019 at 11 am. DrewBob Ford, Brandon Ross, Shivella Schwab, Patrick Russell, Joshua and Caleb Black juggled balls and clubs, and unicycled. Meredith Gordon added his hat manipulation skills.

We celebrated World Juggling Day on Saturday, June 15, 2019 from 6-8 PM in Atlanta on the BeltLine greenspace at Ponce de Leon Ave on the east side of Ponce City Market. Over 30 jugglers from Atlanta and surrounding area including a juggler from Augusta, GA came to teach juggling and juggle together. Over 50 people stopped by to learn to juggle balls and clubs. We even taught an Atlant police officer to juggle clubs! Afterwards we walked to EATS across the street to eat dinner together. See photos.
Winners of the coveted PHIL award this year were Chuck Clark, Kira DiPietrantonio and Joshua Romeo. Congratulations!
