Weekend of Wonder
Three-Day Magic Festival Comes to Asheville

Award-winning Wizard Jeff McBride
Asheville has a mysterious new festival up its sleeve this spring, welcoming the Weekend of Wonder on May 2-4.

For three days, a dream team of master magicians will appear at more than a dozen venues in a dazzling showcase of close-up, stage and street magic, one-make shows, lectures, workshops and all-star galas.

Renowned magicians Jay Scott Berry and Maxwell Blade have teamed up to produce the festival, which is rapidly becoming one of the largest magic gatherings in the U.S.

Joining Blade and Berry will be international stars such as Jeff McBride and Michael Ammar, as well as regional favorites Ricky Boone and Chastain Criswell.

The Asheville Community Theatre will be hosting most of these family-friendly shows, with tickets starting at $10, and packages available for those who wish to be amazed by the entire weekend of festivities. In addition, magicians will appear on the streets and sidewalks of Asheville for free shows on Friday evening.

Catch this festival before it does a disappearing act! Check the official Weekend of Wonder website for details.
