Do you believe in magic?

Whether you’re a skeptic or a true believer, you’ll want to check out Vancouver’s upcoming magic festival.

Taking place at Vancouver Playhouse from September 7 to 9, A World of Magic is set to bring in seven world-famous magicians for sensational live performances.

This isn’t just your average rabbit out of a hat situation; it’s a Las Vegas-caliber magic show so you can expect big things that will leave you amazed and completely awestruck.

And it’s all happening because the International Magician’s Gala is partnering up with Canada Chuan Sheng Culture & Media Group and The Vancouver Magic Circle.

Now for the magician talent.

You’ll get to see Canada’s master illusionists Murray Hatfield & Teresa, world champion magician Juliana Chen, shock magician and daredevil Wayne Houchin, America’s Got Talent contestant Aaron Crow, the misfit of magic Ed Alonzo, juggling magician Claudius Specht, as well as “the inventor” of magic, Kevin James. 

You’ll be giving back by attending the magic festival as $3 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Richmond Hospital Foundation.

Tickets to the family-friendly show are on sale now, ranging from $58 to $158 via Eventbrite. And you can get 30% off at the checkout when you use the promo code dailyhive. Get your tickets now at
