PORTLAND JUGGLERS

The Portland Jugglers usually meet on Wednesdays at Reed College. Sadly, due to Covid and the recent collapse of Reed's gym from an ice storm, meetups are sparse. Often, people will meet up to jam at Alberta Park on Wednesdays, around 6pm. It is free and open to the public. All kinds of juggling, object manipulation, and circus skills are welcome. People are always available to help get you started or learn a new trick.

Reed College began offering juggling as a PE class in 1979, and it was open to the public who frequently brought new skills to the college class. The public component grew into the Portland Jugglers, and we continue to meet weekly concurrent with the college class. We are grateful to Reed College for helping foster Portland's vibrant juggling community.
