The European Juggling Convention is a week-long festival of juggling and related circus skills, welcoming thousands of jugglers from all over the world.
A proposal to host the EJC in Ireland in 2014 was submitted to the board of the European Juggling Association and approved by popular vote at EJC 2011 in Munich, Germany.
Ireland has a significant and rapidly growing community of enthusiastic jugglers. The first juggling convention in Ireland was held in 1999 with a group of 30 jugglers from the Republic and Northern Ireland. Today there are upwards of 7 conventions held each year in Dublin, Belfast, Tralee, Galway, Clonakilty, Tullamore and Birr which host up to 300 people each.
EJC 2014 will be held in Millstreet, Co. Cork, Ireland from the 19th to the 27th July 2014.
