FISM in le Soleil

From the May 18th article "Quebec will host the World Magic Championships for the first time" by Justin Staircase in le Soliel (translated by Google):

For the very first time, the World Magic Championships will be held in North America, in Quebec City, alongside the 11th Magic Festival, from July 25 to 31.

The championship will be held from July 25 to 30 and will take the form of several galas that will complement the magic festival that will be held in parallel. Ms. Auclair clarified at a press conference on Wednesday that the event was originally scheduled for 2021 before being canceled. One hundred and ten competitors are expected to participate in the competition, which will end with a gala of champions on July 30.

Renée-Claude Auclair believes that hosting such an event within the walls of Quebec could make the city one of “four or five essential destinations in the world of magic”.


Quebec will also host the eleventh edition of the Quebec Magic Festival, in partnership with the International Federation of Magical Societies (FISM). The spokesperson for this edition Luc Langevin detailed the “500 hours of free entertainment in the streets of Quebec, from Sillery to Limoilou” and “the 2500 magicians expected”. The magician also said he was proud to be associated with such an episode because “magic is family, everyone likes it”.
