Get to Know Joe the Juggler

Dollywood is known for many things including exceptional entertainment. That amazing entertainment brings extremely high-quality and talented performers to work at the park. One of those entertainers, and one that you don’t want to miss, is Joe the Juggler!

Most recently, I caught him in Wilderness Pass Plaza for a 30-minute show that is sure to please everyone in your group. Joe the Juggler has been juggling for 14 years, with the last five in the Pigeon Forge area. He shows off his juggling skills by juggling clubs, balls and even a chain saw! (It’s not as dangerous as you think—be sure to see his show to know what I mean!) We loved seeing him use the Chinese Yo-Yo.

Joe the Juggler started juggling in college when a roommate invited him to a juggling club. He developed an interest that led to learning more from friends, YouTube and even other local Pigeon Forge performers. That invitation to a juggling club led Joe the Juggler to a job performing now as an entertainer at Dollywood.

This season, Joe the Juggler shows have been in Wildwood Grove and Wilderness Pass. In the fall, his act will be part of the ‘streetmosphere’ throughout the park. And, during Smoky Mountain Christmas he will warm up the crowds before one of the Christmas shows.

Insider Tip

If you catch Joe the Juggler in the summer at Wilderness Pass Plaza, the seating is covered and under fans! Make sure to stop by SkyView Snacks or Splinter’s Funnel Cakes for a treat to enjoy while you watch the show.

Don’t miss out on seeing Joe the Juggler before the year is over. Make sure you check the park schedule when you visit or check the app before you come to ensure seeing Joe the Juggler is part of your plans. It is the perfect show for every single person in your family!
