Texas School for the Deaf

An Austin tradition since 1994, the annual Jugglefest is a three day celebration of juggling and jugglers. There's also a unicycling component to the event.

The festival is a working festival, and a laid back, informal one at that, with plenty of emphasis on workshops, contests, and games. Beginning in 2012, Jugglefest is now hosted at the Texas School for the Deaf on South Congress AVE.





Whether you're a juggler, a unicyclist, aspire to be one, or just enjoy the spectacle of the circus arts, this event is for you.

2011 Jugglefest featured guests included: Arsene Dupin, Flourish and Fool, Doug Sayers, Josh Horton, Taylor Glenn, and Christopher Haaser.

Jugglefest 2012 featured guests are still pending at the time of this writing . . .

The event is sponsored/organized/supported by the Texas Juggling Society, the University Co-op, and by the City of Austin and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
