What is the Cincinnati Juggling Festival?
A gathering of the coolest jugglers and future jugglers hosted by the Cincinnati Circus Company.

We have decided to give a ways Cincinnati chili cheese coneys to all the people who come out! For those jugglers that are Cincinnati natives this will be well received, for those jugglers not from Cincinnati you’ll get to experience one of our many unique contributions to the world.
