And to make your festival week as affordable as possible, IJA has negotiated an amazing rate of just $115.00/night single through quad, plus 12% state and local tax and $2.00/room/night city tourism fee ($130.80/night total).



SPECIAL NOTE: You will be required to pay a NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT equal to one night’s room and tax with your reservation.

If your plans change and you can’t make it to the festival, you can swap your reservation to another juggler using the IJA’s Room Swap page on Facebook, where you can find another juggler who needs your room.

This policy has been put into effect to reduce the number of reservation cancellations and unsold rooms during our festival, which has the effect of preventing jugglers from being able to get a reservation at IJA rates during the fest when reservations were made and cancelled, and then left unavailable to other jugglers to reserve.
