Mark your calendars, because the next PMJ is set for March 27-29, 2020! (Headliners TBA.)

Our latest annual event wrapped up to another great success!


What a great weekend of magic! 

Our four 2019 headliners had a great time here in Portland: David Regal, Jonathan Levit, Tom Burgoon, & Robert Ramirez!  

David Regal, the writer/producer for the popular TV show The Carbonaro Effect, came full circle after having been at our very first PMJ in 2009.  Robert Ramirez's close up magic was one of the highlights of last summer's Magic Live in Las Vegas, and we got to see why those accolades were deserved.  Jonathan Levit, a longtime favorite at the Magic Castle in Hollywood and a consultant for just about every movie made about magic, lit things up here in Portland as well. Tom Burgoon showed us why he's considered one of the top comedy magicians in the country !  

Here are some great photos from the 2019 event:

Our previous year's lineup of headliners were great as well!


 David Stone!  Richard Osterlind!  Rocco Silano!  & Whit "Pop" Haydn!  A great bunch of diverse talents! Stone flew here from Paris, Osterlind came as one of the all-time great mentalists, Rocco (from Philadelphia) proved why he's a master of classic manipulation magic, and nobody could resist the charm and wisdom that Pop Haydn brought!  Here's a nice collection of photos from last year's event.

The PMJ keeps reaching new levels of awesome!

Over the years everyone has been having a fabulous time - including the headliners!  ‚ÄčAnd 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 Airport Sheraton has been a great step up, and we're happy to announce we're returning there again 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. (We've come to realize how putting 2 rows of laymen in the front have made these shows even stronger.)  

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 at the Past Headliners tab.
