EJC 2006, Millstreet, Ireland.

The European Juggling Convention (EJC), is the largest juggling convention in the world, regularly attracting several thousand participants. It is held every year in a different European country. It is organized by changing local organization committees which are supported by the European Juggling Association (EJA), a non-profit association founded in 1987 in Saintes, France.[1] Like most juggling conventions, it features a mix of workshops for jugglers, a "renegade" performance performed for participants, and a public show, usually spread out over a period of a week in the European summer. Accommodation is usually in the form of tents provided by participants.
