The 25th Nordic Juggling Convention happenened in Turku, Finland in the summer 2009. The festival took place at Katariinan koulu, Kirkkotie 31, just behind the spahotel Caribia. Most of the events were organized there, like all the workshops, open stage, the special shows, accomodation and dining as well. The other venue for the festival was Barker-theatre, where we had Circus Bar club night and Galashow. We also had kick-ass T-shirts for the convention! All handprinted in Turku, Finland, made by organizers themselves. And as this wasn’t enough every person who participated got 3 torben Wigger custom made NJC2009 logo balls from Torben himself.
