The Magi-Fest is directly responsible for Joshua Jay’s love of magic, and his career trajectory. The Fest was his first convention, and he never missed one from the age of eight until the age of twenty! He is a past champion in the close-up competition, and it remains his favorite convention. “I owe everything to the Magi-Fest, and when I heard it was cancelled, I was deeply affected. When the opportunity came along to become involved in an instrumental way, I leapt at the chance.” Jay is perfectly suited to plan the Fest, as he knows and works with some of the finest talent in magic—and plans to bring the best of the best to the Magi-Fest roster.
