Register at the front table as you enter the festival recreation hall. We accept cash, checks and all 4 major credit cards.

Registration for the entire weekend is $30 for festival participants (jugglers, unicylists, yo-yoists, hoopers, etc.) to cover operating expenses (hall rental, custodial fee, insurance, etc.). Registration fee includes a raffle ticket for prizes (given away at the Saturday afternoon competition) and admission to the Late Night Cabaret.

They have a package deal for Atlanta Jugglers Association members. It’s only $50 for festival registration including this year’s t-shirt, one raffle ticket, one cabaret ticket and AJA yearly dues.

Admission is free to spectators and the public at large for all daytime events at the Yaarab Shrine Center. Tickets for the night cabaret are $10 per person for the public.

The 39th Groundhog Day Jugglers Festival is at the Yaarab Shrine Center Recreation Building on 400 Ponce de Leon Ave., Atlanta, GA 30308. Park for free in the Yaarab Shrine Center parking lot. The lot often fills up on Saturday afternoon before the competition/show so come early and allow time to find other parking. There is NO extra parking across the street this year because of building repairs. Or even better, use MARTA. Click here for more information on the 39th Groundhog Day Jugglers Festival.
