We've firmed up a date for the next PMJ: March 24-26, 2017!  It's too early to book the headliners yet, but the goal is always to top the previous year's lineups.  (In the meantime, we're leaving the above pictures of last year's headliners because they were so much fun!)

We're moving to a nicer venue - the Airport Sheraton. Our attendance was pushing the limits of the Portlander Inn - for their venue room, and their ability to accommodate us in their restaurant. The Sheraton is much nicer, and we'll have a lot more elbow room. The extra venue space will allow us to have a bona fide public show on Saturday night. (And their restaurant has agreed to set up breakfast & lunch buffets, in addition to their menu service!) 

Check the Venue/Hotel page soon for a link to the special rate they'll be giving us on rooms. (And there will  be an additional discount for the first 15 room reservations!)  

The 2016 event was a great success! Michael Ammar, Nate Kranzo, Chad Long & Paul Draper were all excellent, as were the additional performers we had in our evening shows! Here's a link to a nice highlight reel from that event. The attendance topped the 150 mark, and that's one of the reasons we're moving venues.


Started in 2009, the PMJ is a semi-annual 3-day magic convention that brings together magicians from Oregon & Washington & beyond for a great weekend of learning and camaraderie. It's open to all levels of magic enthusiasts, from complete beginners to hobbyists to seasoned pros. It's a long weekend full of instructional lectures, shows, magic dealers, and the camaraderie of your fellow magicians. 

   We can't believe some of the magic stars we've had over the years!  Look at the Past Headliners tab to see our previous lineups!
