What is the Winter Carnival of Magic?

The Winter Carnival of Magic is hosted by IBM Ring 58.  The three-day convention features several lectures, a dealer’s room, a close-up competition, a stage competition, and two evening shows.


Since 2005, the Winter Carnival of Magic has been held at the Country Tonite Theatre in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This is a large and modern theater with a raked [sloping] plush seating arrangement and broadway-style lighting.

The Theatre is located on the east side of the main parkway, just south of the Hatfield and McCoy and WonderWorks Theatres and North of Teaster Lane.
