Atlanta Jugglers

When a club has twice-weekly meetings, rain or shine, you know they’re serious. Unless they’re the Atlanta Jugglers Association, that is. Club president Andy Ford maintains that they just get together to play.

The AJA invites jugglers of all ability levels to the Little Five Points community center on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 pm. There, you’ll see stupendous feats with balls, clubs, hoops, diabolos, and any number of other props. And, you might just learn some tricks yourself.

Then, for a true immersion in the juggling subculture, check out the annual Groundhog Day Jugglers Festival held, well, not necessarily on Groundhog Day, but sometime near it. The 2007 festival at Atlanta’s Yaarab Shrine drew 173 jugglers from around the world. In addition to a yo-yo competition and a juggling variety show entitled only, “the Big Show,” the festival also offers countless opportunities for the kind of serious discussions that only juggling can inspire.
