Street Magic Con: A new event for fans of close-up on the sidewalk

January 18, 2018

Magicians all around the world have plenty of chances to gather and talk shop at conventions large and small. One of the best ways for a new event to carve out its identity is by finding a focus. For the brand new event Street Magic Con, that focus is right in the name.

Jonny V is the brains behind this convention, which will highlight street magic performers. He’s promising networking with fellow close-up specialists, lectures, jam sessions, and vendors. The organizer himself says he’s been performing magic on and off for 20 years, and fell in love with close-up after seeing David Blaine’s Street Magic in 1996.

Everything is clearly still in the very early stages of planning. There isn’t even a set date yet, although Jonny V is targeting summertime in Los Angeles, so Cali locals in particular may want to keep tabs on how this shapes up. Anyone can sign up for email updates to find out more details as they are announced.
