Magi-Fest 2018

Magi-Fest – Jan 25 – 27 2018

Welcome to the Columbus Magi-Fest 2018! We are the oldest annual magic convention in the United States, and one of the largest and most revered. We have sold out for seven consecutive years, and 2018 will be no different.
Your registration is fully refundable until November 15th, so there is absolutely no reason to wait. We sell out every year, and registering secures your spot. You can sign up in two minutes on our secure site.
Magi-Fest Hoodies are Back! Last year we debuted hoodies because, quite honestly, we wanted them for ourselves. So we ordered thirty, thinking about half would sell and half would go to the volunteers. They sold out in the first fifteen minutes of registrations! These are high-quality, interior-lined hoodies with a very cool design. And, they hold up beautifully (as we’ve worn ours nearly every day since last year!). When you register you can reserve one for pickup at registration. They will NOT be available for purchase at the registration desk, so you must reserve them in advance if you would like one. Just $30
We are not yet announcing these changes, nor are we ready to unveil our UNBELIEVABLE Guest of Honor. But there are some things we can tell you:
WHEN: January 25-27 (Good news…this is not Super Bowl Weekend…YES!)
WHERE: Crown Plaza Columbus North. Everyone loves the venue and we’re right on the edge of outgrowing it. So let’s enjoy at least one more year in this warm, hospitable, and session-friendly environment
WHO: We are not yet ready to unveil who our Guest of Honor will be. But here are some clues: 
  • He has never appeared at Magi-Fest before
  • He revolutionized his chosen field of mentalism
  • He has almost-certainly published more magic than any living magician
