In honor of his 17th year at the Maxwell Blade Theater of Magic, Maxwell Blade is hosting a festival of master magicians called Weekend of Wonder. The event will take place from September 20-22.
Blade’s co-host is Jay Scott Berry, an internationally known “Master of the Art.” Between Berry and Blade, their magical flare will appeal to a wide range of audiences, young and old. In addition to shows, there will be a magical marketplace, contests, street performers, colorful banners, lectures and workshops on the art of magic, and many more surprises along the way. Also, a grand gala will take place during the festival, reminiscent of a bygone era with elegant tones.
These two men and John Venus, who will be assisting them in producing and planning the festival, will hold a spectrum of fantastic shows at the Maxwell Blade Theater and select venues throughout Hot Springs. Each event is designed to excite the imagination and inspire amazement.
“Anyone who suggests that there is no such thing as real magic,” Berry says, “doesn’t understand what real magic is. Magic lives forever, in our dreams, in our imagination. Magic is the most ancient and mysterious of Arts. We amaze, we amuse and we inspire. Even though the effects may be illusion, the experience is very real.”
And you can experience the magic brought to life in Hot Springs National Park!
