Magi-Fest 2016
Jan 28 - 31 2016, Columbus, Ohio






Over the past four months, we've heard the same refrain from our valued guests: "Best magic event EVER," and "Your convention is the smoothest, nicest experience we've had." EVERY event starts on time. Our dealer room is enormous, with vendors from around the world, and our talent is uniformly excellent. On our gala show last year we had six acts...and SIX standing ovations. Many have said, "It just can't get any better." But it will. Just wait and see.

We have three very special things planned for Magi-Fest 2016. We won't announce those yet, but you should register now to secure your place. The price STILL remains the same $150 dollars it has been for over a decade, but only until June 1st, when the price is raised. There is NO REASON to wait. Full refunds are available until November 15th. Register now, and join us for the most spirited, exciting magic convention in the country. See you there!

Important updates:

1. Book your hotel early. It ALWAYS sells out two months in advance, and it costs you nothing to book now. Call 877-227-6963 and make sure to mention the Magi-Fest for the best and unpublished rate.

2. Register now to save money. We have YET to raise the price of the Magi-Fest, as long as you register early. It has been and will continue to be just $150, but on June 1st the price starts to increase.

3. Talent. We're ready to tell you about four of the acts we have booked: Helder Guimarães, Jeff McBride, Aaron Fisher and Asi Wind. See below for more info!
