44th RIT Spring Juggle-In

44th RIT Spring Juggle-In April 6, 2024

The annual RIT Spring Juggle-In, Saturday, April 6, 2024, is one of the longest-running juggling festivals in North America. Jugglers from around the nation come to the Clark Gym on RIT campus from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to join in the fun, with over 500 attendees expected typically. All are welcome to attend, whether you want to juggle or just watch. There will be activities for jugglers and spectators of all levels, including free workshops, games, competitions, raffles, and vendors throughout the day.

The capstone event of the Juggle-In is always the Saturday night public show, located this year at Ingle Auditorium, in the Student Union on RIT Campus, which features “Rollercoaster”, performed by award-winning juggler, Wes Peden.

Wes has performed around the world from Olympic stadiums in Tokyo to Broadway theatres in NYC and Glacier Museums in Iceland. His energetic, playful, and complex style has won awards from the International Juggling Association and Cirque de Demain. Wes uses the skills he has honed from the age of 5 to twist gravity into the most beautiful knots physics will allow.

Surrounded by huge inflatable blue structures and accompanied by electro beats composed of distorted rollercoaster sounds, Peden performs original tricks inspired by rollercoasters and their high-tech seatbelts. A spinning plate ceremony becomes a celebration of the great rides of the past; an epic 3-ball disco juggling evokes the evolution of rollercoasters; a 4-meter transparent tube turns into a path around Wes’ body to make balls flow through loops, helixes, and corkscrews. Rollercoaster twists theatrical rules to create a safe space to perform some of the most difficult and unique juggling ever done on stage!

The show starts at 8:00 p.m. Doors open at 7:40 p.m. For ticket information, go to https://www.rittickets.com/online/.
