      This is a very long page. Why have I put all of these art forms on one huge page? Because the same conventions, and suppliers cover all of these art forms. You may wish to use the links listed below to help you get around this page.
     You will find a large list of conventions and suppliers on this page. Conventions are a great place to get training from someone that really knows what they're doing, and is more then willing to share their knowledge and experience with you. Please understand that this is only a sampling of the conventions and suppliers that are on the East coast. Contact your local clown or magic club to get more information about what is going on in your area.

This is the beginning of the Clowning information
About Christian Clowning and other types of Clowning. 
Clowning is the only form of acting, that I know of, in which there is almost no difference between how Christian performers and secular performers act in public. Both kinds of Clowns are some of the most big hearted, truly nice people on the planet. I would guess that better than 25% of all real clowns are Christians. The general rules of clown conduct require you to be an exceptionally nice person, clean and polite. You just do not see nasty, real clowns. Very few clowns smoke, and none smoke while clowning. To find your local clown club try: 1. looking in the phone book for clowns, or look under magicians (If you can find a magician, he can tell you where to find the clowns.) 2. Check with your local theater arts supplier, or party supplies company. 
If you have any interest in Clowning at all, I highly recommend going to a clown convention. Clowns are very willing to share anything they know. They love to have GOOD CLEAN FUN, and you have not lived until you have seen a hotel that has been overrun with three or four hundred clowns! Go expecting to have a good time! You do not have to be an experienced clown. You do not need to have a costume. In fact most of the people that go to clown conventions never put on their costumes. There are classes and people that you can talk to about every part of clowning, including: makeup, puppets, face painting, skits, costumes, ventriloquism, magic, balloons, and much more! Conventions are also a great place to buy all kinds of clown stuff, there are lots of clown stuff vendors. Below are listed a few of the conventions that are held on the east coast. There are so many conventions that I can't list them all. They are all over the country. To find out about clown conventions in your area contact your local clown club. I can tell you that even the worst convention that I have been to was very good, and the best was outstanding!!! If at all possible, you want to stay in the same hotel with the convention. Register and make your reservations as soon as you find out about a convention, because they fill up fast!
