Get In on the Act at Juggling Festival & Public Show

The public is invited to participate in the April 23-25 event at UCSB

Get in on the act as the 34th annual Isla Vista Juggling Festival & Public Show gets under way April 23-25 at UCSB’s Robertson Gym.

The public is invited to participate as jugglers, unicyclists, clowns, magicians — and maybe juggling prop vendors — showcase their talents. No skill is necessary to watch! Beginners and those interested in learning to juggle are especially encouraged to attend.

The festival is free. Admission for the Public Show on Saturday night is $10 for adults and $5 for students and children.

The event will be held in memory of Patty Laney, a local activist and juggler who became a victim of sexual violence and homicide. All of the proceeds from the sale of festival T-shirts and the public show on Saturday will go to the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center.


» Friday: 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., open juggling at Robertson Gym

» Saturday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., open juggling and workshops at Robertson Gym and various grassy areas surrounding the gym

» Saturday: 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., Public Show at Robertson Gym

» Saturday: 10 p.m. to midnight, open juggling at Robertson Gym

» Sunday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., open juggling at Robertson Gym

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
