great lineup for The upcoming Magic Jam!

This year we've got SHAWN FARQUHAR and MAX MAVEN!


See brief bios on them on the Headliner tab - but these guys are such legends that nothing really needs to be said beyond their names! (And it would take volumes to list all their outstanding accomplishments!) We've also got magic greats JOHN SHRYOCK and STEPHEN BARGATZE!

THIS JUST IN: We managed to coax ROBERT RAMIREZ to come back and be in our close up show!!

Are we being serious here? Yes!! This pack of magic greats are really joining us in Portland!

Portlaned Magic Jam 2019

The PMJ keeps reaching new levels of awesome!

Over the years the PMJ has been a great time for everyone involved - including the headliners! Looking back at our list of past headliners - holy cow!  And speaking of headliners, looking back 2 years it's still hard to believe these legends all came to our 2017 event: Banachek, Asi Wind, Michael Finney, & Tony Clark!  Each of these masters did great lectures, performed in our evening shows, performed close-up shows, and had some great chemistry in our panel discussion. On top of this, they were extremely accessible hanging out with us between the events!   

The Airport Sheraton

Our move to the Sheraton has been a great step up, and we're happy to announce we're returning for our next event March 27-29, 2020. The extra space allows us more elbow room, more dealers, and the added electricity of opening the evening shows up to the public.  

Event History & Overview

Started in 2009, the PMJ is an annual 3-day magic convention that brings together magicians from Oregon & Washington & beyond for a great weekend of learning & camaraderie. It's open to all levels of magic enthusiasts, from beginners to hobbyists to seasoned pros. It's a weekend packed with instructional lectures, shows, magic dealers, a panel discussion, a contest, and the camaraderie of fellow magicians. 

We can't believe the magic headliners we continue to host every year!  See the complete list above and at the Past Headliners tab.
