The 19th annual Portland Juggling Festival takes place this weekend, September 30 through October 2, 2011 at the Reed College Sports Center (3202 SE Woodstock).
The Portland Juggling Festival is one of the largest regional juggling festivals in the United States, with jugglers from around the world and down the street joining together to share their knowledge and show their skills. We have performers, hobby jugglers, and beginners joining together for a two and a half days of throwing. Expect a big show Saturday evening, workshops for beginning, intermediate, and advanced jugglers, and vendors of every variety of juggling prop.
Attendees have dozens of workshop options and multiple vendors‘ wares to peruse. And Saturday night take in a show: The Juggling and Vaudeville Extravaganza, which features a family-friendly assortment of local and national juggling and variety acts in one live performance highlights the festival on Saturday night. Performers include Luke Burrage, SMIRK, The Poetic Motion Machine, and lots more!
