77th Annual IJA Festival
July 8-14, 2024
Green Bay, Wisconsin

Mark your calendar now for a full week of incredible juggling, workshops, shows, competitions and memories in Green Bay! Stay tuned to this site for regular updates on performers, registration information, special events and unexpected surprises!

For many jugglers, the IJA Festival is the main event of the year. If you’ve never been to one, join us for  this year to find out what keeps bringing our attendees back for their second, third, or thirtieth time. Our shows feature the best of the best in the juggling world, and we are proud to present 4 nights of shows in the Meyer Theater, and dozens of other workshops, competitions, games, and events throughout the week. The IJA Festival is the premier place for jugglers to gather and share tricks, skills, and other feats with those who can most appreciate them: other jugglers.

Downtown Green Bay is also an ideal setting for the IJA festival, with dozens of walkable restaurants, green spaces, and locally owned shops. All Festival venues are conveniently located in the compact and friendly downtown center. Green Bay is extremely easy to get to, as well — it’s just one hop away from the whole world via Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport. Everyone you want to know will be there, so come join all the fun in a great city when we celebrate 77 years of The International Jugglers’ Association!

Things To Look Forward To

Festival Site: The KI Convention Center will be our main venue, and has the best layout we’ve seen in recent years for an IJA Festival. It features more than 40,000 square feet of space, and is located on the Fox River. When our festival team toured this convention center we immediately realized that it had everything we’ve ever wanted in a single space. Our gym space in the main exhibit hall will be open 24/7 throughout the duration of the festival.

Official Hotels: The IJA has negotiated some amazing rates for our members at the Hyatt Regency Green Bay. The hotel is attached to the KI Convention Center and is the ideal place to stay for festival attendees traveling from out of town. Visit our Lodging page for more information on the hotel.

Festival Shows: The Meyer Theater is a stunningly beautiful historic live performance theater, recently restored to its original 1930’s glory. We are thrilled to be able to put four nights of world-class juggling and variety shows and the IJA Juggling Championships on the stage of this magnificent theater. These shows are the unforgettable highlights of every IJA festival.
