Magic Jam (Chris Nesseth)

PDX Magic Jam returned to the Sheraton Portland Airport Hotel on March 25-27, which drew magicians from across the country for a weekend of learning and camaraderie. Illusionists at all levels—from hobbyists to pros—attended close-up card work shows, lectures on magic theory, and stage performances to keep up with the latest developments in their craft.
