For Young Magicians

Welcome to Magifest, the ultimate gathering place for magic enthusiasts!

If you're between the ages of 8 — 18 and live, breathe, eat, and sleep magic, then the Magifest Youth Event is for you! It’s your magic convention within the magic convention, a place and time that just might change the trajectory of your life… The youth event gives you special access to some of the best magicians in the world, and we've created an exclusive club room for you to jam with them, trade magic secrets, or just hang out with your friends.

All those people you've watched online - Chris Ramsay, Lance Burton, Carisa Hendrix, Andi Gladwin, Joshua Jay, and David Williamson - have given exclusive talks at our youth event in the past. And who knows? Your favorite magic superstar might turn up this year to share their wisdom and jam with you late into the night!

Scholarships for young magicians

We're pleased to announce that the Magifest Youth Scholarship Program is back. This means that any young magician (8-18 during the dates of the convention) has the opportunity to attend Magifest for free along with a parent or guardian.

This year, thanks to the generosity of donors, we have 50 scholarship slots to fill. Each scholarship also comes with free entrance for one parent.

As parents you'll meet other "magic parents" and learn how best to support the interest of your young wizard.

How to Apply

To secure a scholarship for you and one parent, you must perform a free show to a non-profit in your area. This coud be a church or synagogue or youth center or charity...get creative! Provide photo evidence of your show and some sort of letter on behalf of the charity acknowledging your work and...that's it.


Contribute to our youth fund

Our youth scholarship is jointly sponsored by Vanishing Inc. Magic and our attendees. If you feel as though you are able to help contribute, please email us.
