What goes up must come down, but that’s all part of the fun as world class jugglers will convene in Rancho Cordova for the Annual Damento Juggling Festival on Feb. 4-6.
Jugglers from around the region will pack their balls, clubs and fire batons and head here for the first time, making Rancho Cordova northern California’s “Juggling Capital” – at least for the weekend.
The event will feature free juggling lessons for kids and adults, plus a juggling exhibition and show, which is open to the public. Concessions will be available.
We had a great planning meeting today. Thank you to everyone that participated. I would like to invite anyone who would like to help to attend future meetings. We decided to keep them at my house as a midpoint location.
