J-Fest is held at the Sundance Camp in Antalya and it’s a magical location in a kind of secret bay with warm water into October. Around 500 jugglers from Europe and Turkey come together to make workshops and shows and seminars about their juggling experiences around the world.
It’s a kind of open, relaxed atmosphere where you can learn new skills, share some creativity and meet a bunch of really interesting people, as well as see some juggling shows for jugglers – quite a different thing than the usual performance for the public.
The organisers say:
“After years of discussion, planning and dreaming we finally gathered our toys and came together at Turkey’s first juggling convention in 2006. Our dreams came true with you. Our enthusiasm grew bigger and bigger each year, and now we are carrying out the tenth Turkish Juggling Convention together. We are hoping to bring your screams of laughter together in yet another festival dream.”
