The third year of Fog City Magic Fest is going down in San Francisco this weekend. The Bay Area will be treated to several performances at the Exit Theater over January 25-28.
The highlighted performers are David Parr, Jade, and Andrew Evans. The event kicks off with an opening night gala hosted by Jay Alexander where several performers will get a chance to show off their tricks. Fog City also has a couple very unique shows. The final event is a showdown between two pairs of magicians. Both teams are given a few elements, then have 30 minutes to incorporate them into a brand new trick. Think Iron Chef, but for magic.
There will also be a special tribute event honoring Daryl, a renowned magician and member of the magic community. All proceeds from the Saturday afternoon show will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Check out the schedule and buy tickets for each of the events at the Fog City Magic Fest website.
Professional magicians are often whisked away to all corners of the globe to perform to royalty and locals alike, and at Genii Convention 2017, we got a chance to chat with Jade about one time she was personally requested by the Royal Family of Monaco. She recounts her chat with Prince Albert, as well as giving some advice to young women looking to find their way forward in a career in magic.
