The Gathering of the Juggalos Returns To Ohio For Its 21st Celebration
Last year the pandemic squashed the hopes of Juggalos all over the country, as for the first time in it's 21 consecutive years running, the Gathering of the Juggalos was cancelled. This year however, Luv Rises From The Ash Like The Butterfly, as the 21st annual Gathering of the Juggalos returns to Thornville, Ohio at Legend Valley. The Gathering, which was started by Detroit's Insane Clown Posse is a homecoming, where people from everywhere gather for 5 days and put it down. In the past, the gathering has been a place for concerts, stand up comedy, wrestling, parties, and at time lawlessness.
This year some of the main attractions is of course the Insane Clown Posse performing their double album Bizaar/Bizzar for the first time, along with their un-painted performance of their original band Inner City Posse. Also making appearances to host the stage are Steve-O from Jackass, Chris Hansen from "To Catch A Predator" who is also running his own seminar, Vanilla Ice, Kid N Play, as well as two nights of Juggalo Championsh-t Wrestling. Also, the Juggalo burlesque troop, Juggalesque will be returning to the stage this year as well, among so many other attractions and shows.
