Magi-Fest 2015
Jan 29 - 31 2015, Columbus, Ohio






We are pleased to announce the 2015 Magi-Fest. Last year we heard the same phrase uttered at every turn: “How are you ever going to top this convention?” The answer: we just did! Read on for how to register for the convention event of the year, and a sneak peek at some of the talent.

Our youth scholarship is back for the third year running. If you are under eighteen, submit your application to join us for free!

The most important point: register early! We’re returning to the lovely Crowne Plaza again—it’s the ideal hotel for the Magi-Fest. But it is no longer large enough to fill our ever-growing Magi-Fest family. We have decided to CAP attendance this year, and this means those trying to register a month before the convention will likely discover it is already sold out. Registration is just $150 per person (that's $50 cheaper to register now, instead of later), and your registration is fully refundable through November 1st. You have nothing to lose by registering now.

You have been wildly enthusiastic about our choice of offering long-form shows from some of magic’s brightest stars. So we will bring in one-man shows again for Thursday and Friday nights. There will be MORE dealers in 2015 than ever before at a Magi-Fest, several of them international dealers. And, we will expand our program of finding unique topics and talks in the 15-30 minute range, so you get a huge array of information in each session.

We’re also going to improve the visibility on the screens this year. We realize that there were issues with the monitors, and this will be fixed, allowing us to create the best Magi-Fest yet!
