One of the top attractions of the weekend's events are the lectures by each of our headliner magicians. We work hard to get the very best. They're always great teachers, as well as extremely entertaining people. You can bank on having a ball and learning a lot from each and every one of them!
We have evening headline shows on Fri & Sat nights, featuring the headliners and some additional guests.
These are the only events the public can buy tickets for $20 in advance or $25 at the door. All seating is general - however the front 2 rows are reserved for the public.
On Saturday morning we get to see all our heavyweights perform close-up shows genuinely close up. The attendees split up to gather around tables in 3 or 4 different rooms, and the performers rotate around doing 20-mins set in each room.
On Sunday we have all our headliners together on stage to talk about issues of their choosing, as well as topics you bring up. A moderator guides the way through this chemistry of thoughts.
This is "parlor magic", with each person getting up to 5 minutes. By parlor, we mean standing up, with no magic happening down on a table (though a table can be used to place props.) The contest is limited to the first 10 non-professionals to sign up. You can sign up in advance or at the event. Sign up info will be posted as soon as the next event date is in place.
The 2018 contest winner was Teagan Brown, from Ft Collins, Colorado!
On Sunday afternoon the headliners often offer extra-fee private workshops. They will choose the minimum & maximum # of attendees, as well as the specific time to hold them. This past hear Richard Osterlind and Rocco Silano each put on exceptional workshops that drew raves from everyone who attended.
This is the heart of the weekend for many. In-between events, during meals, and late at night, people gather together and share their hobby in this sea of kindred spirits. People gather in the venue room, the session room, the restaurant, and in their hotel rooms.
