The IJA invites you to join jugglers around the globe in celebrating World Juggling Day (WJD) on June 15, 2013.
Celebrate the day in your own unique way: host a juggling picnic, have a Skype session with your international juggling friends, teach your friends how to juggle, be a part of the IJAs video collaboration and “I <3 IJA” project, etc. However you choose to celebrate the day, we hope you will join the IJA in our efforts to get as many people around the world as possible, all juggling on the same day.

“I <3 IJA” Photos on Facebook
New for this year!
World Juggling Day is held annually on the Saturday closest to June 17th – the day the IJA was founded in 1947. This year, we invite you to join us in celebrating the IJA’s 66th Anniversary by participating in our “I <3 IJA” project.
On World Juggling Day, post a photo of yourself holding an “I <3 IJA” sign to your Facebook wall.
Tag the IJA Facebook Page in your photo, and you will be entered into a drawing for a prize package including:
- A $50 gift certificate from Juggling Market
- 7 Phat Tyre juggling balls from Flying Clipper
- A One-Year IJA Membership
- A 2013 WJD t-shirt
In the caption, tell us who you are and why you juggle! Who’s your biggest inspiration? What do you love about the juggling community? Or simply say, “Happy World Juggling Day!”
PDFs of various versions of the “I <3 IJA” signs are available for you to choose from and print here. Or, get creative and make your own sign!
Each time you see one of these photos pop up on Facebook on June 15th, you will know it’s another person celebrating World Juggling Day.
