The 3rd Annual Fog City Magic Fest returns to EXIT Theatre in 2018, running January 24 - 27! Curated by local legend Jay Alexander of the Marrakech Magic Theater and Christian Cagigal, named 2017’s Best Magician by San Francisco Bay Guardian’s Best of the Bay. This year’s festival will include the return of solo sensation, Jade; Andrew Evans, from the underground hit The Magic Patio; a kid-friendly afternoon with Dante Mancini; and our own fan-favorite competition, MAGIC SLAM!. We're also proud to welcome David Parr, fresh off his winning performance on Penn & Teller: Fool Us.
This year’s festival will also include a special tribute show to magic legend Daryl, hosted by Dennis Kyriakos, with Otis, Susan Zeller, and legendary magician Peter Samelson, from NYC. We were honored to feature Daryl as a guest performer in last year’s festival, and the magic community suffered a tremendous loss when he left us this past February. All proceeds from this special performance in Daryl’s honor will benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
