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.
