The 70th International Juggler’s Association Festival is set to take place at Cedar Rapids’ Paramount Theater on July 10-16th. The festival will include technical training workshops, a juggling history museum, a youth showcase performance, and a free ‘learning zone’ for aspiring jugglers.
The festival will open with a Welcome Show on Tuesday and close out with a show by the Cascade of Stars on Saturday, which is comprised of professional juggling and circus acts from around the world.
On this News Buzz segment of River to River, Ben Kieffer is joined by International Juggling Association Festival Director, Daniel Holzman, to discuss details about the festival and his lifelong juggling career.
"Saturday morning we'll break out the danger stuff and do stuff for people at the Farmer's Market in Cedar Rapids," he says. "Chainsaws, fire, knives -- everything will be juggled in Cedar Rapids in July."
