Lancaster Juggling Club to Celebrate World Juggling Day 2012

On Saturday, June 16, 2012, members of the Lancaster Throwback Juggling Club will join with jugglers from all over the world to celebrate World Juggling Day.

The Lancaster Throwback Juggling Club will gather in Lancaster’s Long’s Park near the Amphitheater (Park Map) from 1pm to 4pm, weather permitting. Area residents are invited to stop by for free juggling lessons, or just to watch the jugglers practice and perform.

Jugglers across the globe will be doing likewise to spotlight juggling, and generate enthusiasm for and awareness of juggling among the general public. This world-wide event has been organized on the internet by the International Jugglers’ Association (IJA) in celebration of its founding in June 1947.

Juggling clubs from all over the world are posting their plans for World Juggling Day at the IJA web site, For more information on the Lancaster PA event, contact Susan Williams at 717-471-6895 or Posted in Events | Leave a reply

The Lancaster Throwback Juggling Club Performs at the Allen Theatre

In July the Lancaster Throwback Juggling Club had their first group performance. It took place at the Allen Theatre in Annville, PA, where the group performed for half an hour before that night’s featured movie (“Larry Crowne”). For a number of members, this was their first time juggling on stage, and they did a fantastic job! The following video was compiled using footage supplied by family and friends.
