IJA Festival
July 16-22, 2012

The 2012 IJA Festival features three great nights of shows and championship competitions! 

Youth Showcase

This non-competitive stage show Wednesday at 7pm (prior to the Juniors Championships) will feature young performers up to age 18. Beginners and experienced jugglers are welcome. For information on being in the Showcase, contact producer Art Thomas at . Stage time is limited, so sign up early!

IJA Stage Championships

The best jugglers from around the world come to the IJA festival each year to present their skill and art in the IJA Stage Championships, hoping to earn the IJA Gold Medal. Always amazing and often breaking out astounding new tricks and performance styles, the Championships are a must-see for every juggler and juggling fan.

The Juniors Championships will be Wednesday at 8:30pm, and the Individuals and Teams Championships will be Thursday at 7:30pm, both in the Stevens Center Theater. For questions about the IJA stage championships, contact IJA Championships Director Warren Hammond at

Cascade of Stars

The crescendo of the week’s entertainment happens Friday night at 7:30pm at the Cascade of Stars public show, bringing together all of the special guests and featured artists from the festival along with additional top-ranked variety performers in one amazing showcase of world-class talent from around the world. It takes place in the spectacular Stevens Center Theater, a beautiful and spacious vaudeville-era performance venue just one block from the Benton Convention Center. General admission tickets for the Cascade of Stars are included in the event package, and we expect another sell-out show as we had in 2007 and 2009 thanks to the wonderful response to the festival from the local Winston-Salem community. Order your event package today and be witness to another unforgettable Cascade of Stars!

Other Events

Throughout the week, there will be more competitive events such as the Numbers Championships, Joggling Championships, and the Games of the IJA. Non-competitive opportunities for performance are also available through shows like the Youth Showcase, the Planting the Juggling Seed show, and Club Renegade.
