WhenApril 12-14

Where: Catalina State Park


Cost: We operate entirely by donation, so give what you can afford. (Catalina State Park $15 per vehicle/per night overnight camping fee.)
This event marks the Tucson Juggling Club’s 5th festival!  It’s an informal 3-day event held at Catalina State Park on the north side of Tucson. Accommodations will be camping primarily, although there are some hotels relatively close by.The festival operates entirely by donation, however the park requires a small camping fee.  Plenty of time to juggle, hike, juggle, eat (potluck food, but we’ve never gone hungry), and juggle some more.  If you plan on attending it would help us greatly if you email with an idea of how many people will be here and your estimated arrival and departure dates (from the Catalina State Park campsite).
We will be doing stenciling again this year, so bring something to decorate (shirt, bag, etc).
Friday: Arrive and set up your camp.  Food to be shared will be set out on the picnic tables under the ramada and we will setup a fire.
Saturday: Wake up and juggle!  Stop when it gets dark.
Sunday: Slowly pack up while getting side-tracked to juggle with people you didn’t juggle with earlier.
