The Berkeley Juggling Cooperative is doing it again! We are planning our third Berkeley Juggling and Unicycling Festival, scheduled for Friday October 5th to Sunday October 7th, 2007. Last year we had roughly 500 jugglers, unicyclists, performers and artists attend the festival and we hope to have as great a festival this year as last year.
Unlike most juggling festivals, ours has a whole lot of pure unicycle content, including MUni rides, a big-wheel party ride down to the Berkeley Marina, unicycle basketball and lots of other unicycle games and workshops. This year we’re also going to try to find a place to do fire juggling and flaming puck hockey after the public show on Saturday night.
The show was great last year, and included performances by Kaori Matsuzawa, Ryan Woessner, Irene Genelin, and Jeff Groves; we expect we’ll have another outstanding lineup this year.
The festival will be held at the same venue as last year (King Middle School, 1781 Rose Avenue, Berkeley, CA). The schedule will be:
Friday 10/5: Open gym 5pm to 10pm
Saturday 10/5: Open gym 9am to 10pm, big wheel ride, MUni ride, fire juggling
Sunday 10/5: Open gym 9am to 5pm, MUni ride, unicycle games
The festival is open to the public, and free except for the Saturday night show. We hope to see you there!

Note that the festival is the weekend before California MUni Weekend, which will be in Santa Cruz, just over an hour’s drive away. Since we expect there will be a lot of unicyclists in town for these events, we’re also planning to have a number of informal rides and activities during the week. Let me know if you’re coming in from out of town and need a place to crash.
