One of the most popular and fun activities in Hot Springs is visiting the Maxwell Blade Theater of Magic. This is not your average magic show; the performances are fascinating from beginning to the end, performed in an intimate venue. In addition, each year Hot Springs hosts a magic festival. This year the Maxwell Blade Festival of Magic delights attendees from around the world Sept. 30-Oct. 2.
The Festival of Magic takes place at Maxwell Blade’s Theater of Magic, Tillmans Apartment Theatre and Adair Park Stage. The Festival includes magic shows, lectures and workshops with some great magicians performing and teaching. You can even learn the art of magic through personal hands on training and instruction.
At the same time, Hot Water Hills Music and Arts Festival runs from Sept. 30 through Oct. 1 at Hill Wheatley Plaza. While the main event of the Festival is music, it also offers art, food and drink, contests and kids activities. Food trucks will be on hand with interesting food fare, including Hot Rod Weiners. An Art Fair also continues to be a part of the Music Festival with artisans selling paintings, pottery, jewelry and more.
These two festivals are different in scope but both are very entertaining. Consider making a Hot Springs getaway to attend both events. While you’re in town, we’d love to have you stay with us at Lookout Point! We serve an outstanding breakfast each morning, and the setting is an incredibly relaxing place to return to after a fun day attending festivals. Each room has a gorgeous view of the Lake Hamilton, plus our gardens are lovely and include a swing, hammock and labyrinth. Make reservations online or give us a call at 501.525.6155 and we’ll assist you with making the weekend of festivals one to remember
