A Magical Night in the Gardens

Thursday, June 29, 6-9 pm

Due to weather and poor air quality, this event will be held in the Visitors Center

Talk about a “magical night” — this will be one to remember! Six amazing magicians will perform card tricks, slight-of-hand, and close-up magic.

A nice selection of food trucks will be on site, or bring a picnic from home. The Cantigny food and beverage team will offer a specially themed cocktail. On this night, the drink is Magic Mule (Vodka, Ginger Beer, Lime, and Butterfly Pea Flower Tea).  Beer and wine will be available, too, including refreshing Cantigny Kolsch, brewed for us by 93 Octane Brewery in St. Charles.

Dan Brander features great magic…relatively pain free. His years of training and performances produce an entertainment value that not only satisfies, but keeps clients calling for repeat performances.

Nick Gasparro specializes in slight-of-hand close-up magic and mentalism. His effects are visual and direct with fascinating philosophical undertones and engaging themes — all are devastatingly deceptive!

William Wheeler has been performing and studying magic for over 30 years. He primarily focuses on close-up magic with cards, coins and other items. His tricks are designed for smaller, intimate groups.
