Fun Holiday – World Juggling Day

World Juggling Day is held annually on a Saturday closest to June 17 to commemorate the anniversary of the foundation of the International Jugglers Association (IJA) in 1975.

Jugglers have been around since the 15th century.

The unofficial holiday was first observed in the mid-1980s as National Juggling Day in the United States in order to raise awareness of the art and science of juggling and to encourage people to take up the art.

In 1995, the name of the day was changed to World Juggling Day in order to reflect the global reach of the IJA.

How to Celebrate?

  • Attend juggling contests, festivals, and shows where professional jugglers perform.
  • Try your hand with juggling. Just make sure, you start with small items. So no knives or heavy items, ok?

Did You Know…

…that the earliest record of juggling objects dates back to 15th century Egypt?
