The HJW 2023 is over. We had a blast, hopefully you did too!
See you next year!
The Herfst Jongleer Weekend is an annual juggling convention held in Enschede
Two hundred jugglers from the Netherlands and surrounding countries come together for a weekend of juggling excitement. Organised by CatchUp, the convention features a range of workshops and by default also a volleyclub tournament, a fight-night and a party.
To promote interaction between each other, there is a special assignment. Everyone is encouraged to bring a small gift to the HJW (≈ €5). During the HJW everyone receives a card stating who this gift is for, and a card to indicate who you are. With an event at the beginning of the weekend we take the time to visit each other, exchange a gift and get to know each other.
The sports hall where the HJW is held is not a brightly colored place, which we want to change. With a lot of festive accessories, we plan to transform the hall into a cozy party location. If you have any ideas to transform the gym into a place where we will experience a festive weekend, you are welcome to bring them along.
In 2023 the HJW is organized on 3-4-5 November! The most fun juggling festival in the east of The Netherlands!

Accommodation and Food
When registering, there is an option to stay in the cabins. It is also possible to stay at the U Parkhotel or hotel de Broeierd, but this is entirely at your own expense. The U Parkhotel has its own website for information and bookings. As has hotel de Broeierd.
If you buy a ticket for the whole weekend, a dinner meal and breakfast on Saturday and Sunday is included. There will also be vegetarian and vegan options!
Unfortunatly the Stal is not available this year due to constructions. For the same reason there could be some noise from the construction site.
