Berkeley Juggling and Unicycling Festival

When: Fri., Aug. 17, 3 p.m.-12 a.m., Sat., Aug. 18, 9-12 a.m. and Sun., Aug. 19, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. 2012

The logistics of putting together a successful festival can be a lot to juggle -- and so it's somewhat ironic that this proved to be the case even for the Berkeley Juggling club, whose annual circus arts festival was curbed last year when the group had problems securing a venue. Co-organized by the Berkeley Unicyclists, the Berkeley Juggling & Unicycling Festival returns this year with three days of quirky workshops and performances, including everything from instruction in mountain unicycling and juggling for beginners to a Saturday evening variety show ($5-$15) highlighting seasoned performers in both skills. Where else but Berkeley? At Berkeley High School (1980 Allston Way) on Friday through Sunday, Aug. 17-19. Fri. 3 p.m.-midnight; Sat. 9 a.m.-midnight; Sun. 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; free. BerkeleyJuggling.org
