World Juggling Day
World Juggling Day is an annual celebration of the art of juggling and the community that it creates. Held on the third Saturday in June, the day is marked by a variety of events and activities around the world, including juggling workshops, games, and competitions, and shows and performances.
The origins of World Juggling Day can be traced back to the International Jugglers’ Association (IJA), which was founded in 1947. The IJA is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the art of juggling and supporting the juggling community around the world.
World Juggling Day was first celebrated in 1992, and it has since grown into a global event with thousands of participants. On this day, jugglers come together in parks, community centers, and other public spaces to share their skills and to teach others the art of juggling. The day is also marked by juggling festivals and competitions, where jugglers can showcase their talent and compete against each other.
One of the most unique aspects of World Juggling Day is the sense of community that it creates. Jugglers from all over the world come together to share their love of juggling and to connect with others who share their passion. This sense of community is particularly important for young people, who may feel isolated or misunderstood in their love of juggling.
In addition to the events and activities that take place on World Juggling Day, there are also many online resources available for those who want to learn more about juggling. There are instructional videos, online forums, and social media groups dedicated to juggling, making it easy for anyone to get involved and to connect with other jugglers around the world.

Juggling has been shown to have many positive effects on the mind and body, including improved hand-eye coordination, increased focus and concentration, and reduced stress and anxiety.
In addition to the physical and mental benefits of juggling, it is also a great way to build social connections and to meet new people. Juggling clubs and groups are common in many cities around the world, and they provide a supportive and welcoming environment for jugglers of all skill levels.
World Juggling Day is also an opportunity to give back to the community. Many events and activities are organized around the theme of “juggling for charity,” where jugglers raise money for local or international causes.
