About the Magic Festival
WowFest Magic Arts Festival first appeared in Calgary in February of 2013 with a day full of amazing fun magic shows set in the community of Westgate. The festival was launched with the support of the “Cultural Capital of Canada” arts funding from the Calgary 2012 program.
With a successful, sold-out day full of shows, and positive audience feedback, the festival was set to become a recurring event.
The second year brought the festival to the Epcor Centre for Performing Arts and a two week schedule in the intimate Motel Theatre space. Performers travelled from Edmonton and Los Angeles to present unique magic shows as part of the line-up featuring many local magicians, jugglers, and more.
Now in its fifth year the WowFest team is working to create another unique magic experience for audiences.
