The 15. 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 2018 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 Inspiral juggling playground programs.

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


Unlimited entry to all programs + accommodation: 5000 HUF

(The price is valid for one day and for the whole weekend as well)

Daily ticket to all programs: 2500 HUF

(valid daily between 10 am and 2 pm)





During the Convention we provide accommodation in a downtown school building.

Bring sleeping bags and a mattress!

Other accommodation can be booked nearby in the city.



This year unfortunately we are not able to provide food pre-ordering. You will have to manage your own meals during the Convention!

Close to the accomodation, in the center of Pécs, several catering facilities will be open on weekends as well. Their meals and prices are very diverse. You can buy a daily menu for 980, - Ft, and you can also find pasta, pizza, burgers, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free meals.

The nearest restaurants are located on Király Street and Jókai Square.
