The International Brotherhood of Magicians puts on a massive convention each year (and registration is still open for the 2018 bash in Grand Rapids, Michigan). But plenty also happens at the regional level thanks to dedicated work by I.B.M. chapters around the world. Magi-Whirl is one such event.
Magi-Whirl is the work of Ring 50, a chapter representing all stripes of magicians in Washington D.C., Northern Virginia, and Maryland. The convention is happening May 4-5 in Alexandria, Virginia.
This year, Magi-Whirl has four educational lectures just for magicians. Scott Green, Dan Harlan, Krystyn Lambert, and Dr. Michael Rubinstein will be dropping the knowledge at the closed-door lectures. Registration for the full weekend is $75 for Ring 50 members and $85 for non-member magicians.
Any and all guests are welcome at the Magi-Whirl Gala Show, and advanced tickets are just $15 for adults and $10 for children. The Ring 50 website has more information about the event.
To get a sense of the talent involved, check out this adorable bit by children’s magician Scott Green. He’ll be performing at the gala as well as hosting a session.
