PORTLAND JUGGLERS

Weekly Gatherings:

 

  1. Join us at the wonderfully supportive JaJa PDX (819 SE Taylor St, Portland, OR 97214) for indoor juggling.
    Every Tuesday from 7-9pm. 

  2. Starting May 15th, come juggle with us on the lawn on the West side of Reed College (3017 SE Woodstock Blvd, Portland, OR 97202). 

Every Wednesday from 7-9pm until September

Gatherings are open to the public and welcome donations (donations encouraged at Jaja PDX). All kinds of juggling, object manipulation, and circus skills are embraced. We are famously playful and generous with the sharing of our juggling knowledge.

The Portland Jugglers is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to increasing the appreciation and enjoyment of juggling and its affiliated arts. We used to meet on Wednesdays from 7-9 at the Reed College Sports Center for decades. 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 traditionally meet weekly concurrent with the college class. Additionally, we hosted the Portland Juggling Festival at Reed nearly every year of the festival's existence. However, in the winter of 2020, the Sports Center collapsed during an ice storm. While Reed rebuilds, we have landed at a new circus venue Jaja PDX. We are grateful to Reed College for helping foster Portland's vibrant juggling community and look forward to the rebirthing of Reed's Gym space in the Autumn of 2024.
