The 17. Hungarian Juggling Convention is located in the heart of the historical downtown of Pécs!

Downtown of Pécs is an ideal setting for the Convention, loaded with fun, friendly, casual places to eat, drink and shop.

This year we are guesting on the 2019 Zsolnay Light Festival, so besides the spectacular light parade and the projection mapping shows, we can enjoy the performances of international circus artists as well.

All venues of the Convention are close to each other and are conveniently located in the compact and friendly downtown center. The programs are held in three separate locations. Besides the outdoor and the indoor practice areas the fire space awaits you!

The inspirational and comfortable gym of the downtown school offers practice and learning opportunities. Beginner and advanced circus workshops will be available in the gym, just as 72 hours of non-stop practice.

The courtyard of the Museum Directorate will provide an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, where you can try out the  juggling playground programs.

After dark, the Fire Space is waiting for everyone who wants to try, practice and show off its skills.
