The 5th Annual Chicago Magic Competition is coming to Navy Pier on July 8th. So if you're in town, you'll want to attend -- or enter!
Since its inception, the Chicago Magic Competition has been uniquely committed to an emphasis on magic that entertains real people rather than just magicians. In support of this ideal, (1) the whole event is open to the public and conducted at Navy Pier, one of the most popular destinations in Chicago. (2) It is judged by a panel of predominantly non-magicians drawn from the theatre and media worlds (people who know entertainment and can provide useful feedback for the performers); this panel decides the First, Second, and Third Place awards. (3) There is also a People's Choice Award, which allows the entire audience present to have its votes heard.
If you're in the Chicago area and want to see some great magic, come to the Crystal Garden area of Navy Pier on Tuesday, July 8th. The competition begins at 3pm.
