Join us August 27 - 29, 2013 for more spectacular magic, illusions and entertainment!
Cape Cod Festival of Magic 2013
While summer in Yarmouth is always a magical time of the year, the last week of August promises to be extra magical as some fifteen magicians, many well known in magic circles around the world, will be performing in the Third Annual "Cape Cod Festival of Magic." Join us at the state-of-the-art Dennis-Yarmouth High School Auditorium from Tuesday, August 27, through Thursday, August 29, for a spectacular display of magic sleight of hand, grand illusions, creative artistry, and side-splitting comedy. Be entertained by the magical madness of Kohl & Company; astounded by the wondrous illusions of Ice McDonald; mystified by Losander, the master of levitation; awed by the "grand illusions" of Markus & Angelique Steelgrave; spellbound by the sleight of hand of Joseph Young; and amazed by the artistry of Maria Ibanez and Merlina the Magical Storyteller ... plus the talents of many more nationally recognized entertainers.
Spectacular stage shows will be featured at 7:30 p.m. each evening, and a family matinee performance each afternoon at 2:00 p.m. There's an abundance of magical fun to enjoy each day ... and each show during the Festival will be different, so why not join us for a number of shows! Matinees admission is $10 per person and evening performances $15. Once again this year, the Cape Cod & Islands Council of the Boy Scouts of America, is the host sponsor of this event. And, each afternoon after the matinee performance, a complimentary interactive magic workshop will be conducted for the general public and magicians alike.
If you are looking for a place to stay or dine in the area, visit the lodging and restaurant page. Even if you're planning to take in a number of shows at the Festival, be sure to leave time to explore other activities and attractions around the Cape. Whether you just wish to relax on a sandy beach and enjoy the warm ocean waters, partake of a whale watch cruise, make an excursion to the popular islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, bike the "Rail Trail," play some championship golf, explore quaint New England villages and historic attractions, or land a blue fish or striper, we've got plenty to keep you well occupied. See the What's To Do page for a complete listing of activities.
And, while Harry Houdini and Harry Potter may never have appeared in Yarmouth, their traditions of magical mastery will take place in this most magical of settings at the Cape Cod Festival of Magic. We look forward to welcoming you to Cape Cod this summer for a most magical time! Visit www.capecodmagicfest.com for complete information.
For Members of the Magic Community
The Cape Cod Festival of Magic is for magic lovers of all ages. This is NOT, however, a "magic convention!" Unlike the magic conventions with which you may be familiar, there is no registration fee ... just come to the Cape to attend the show or shows of your choice during the week. There's also no obligation to register or stay at any particular lodging property, but if you do choose to stay at one of the area's fine establishments, several local resorts will be offering specially discounted "Magic Festival Packages" for members of the magic community. Please visit the "Festival Partners" page for links to participating properties.
Over the course of the event, lectures will be open to magicians (not the public) at the Red Jacket Beach Resort in South Yarmouth. Plus, enjoy a seaside cocktail reception on Monday, August 26, and meet and mingle with the performers ... followed by a special sneak preview show!
With lots to see and do on the Cape, not to mention some of the best beaches and warm summer waters in New England, this is sure to be a fabulously magical week.
