The Magic Festival is organised by professional magician Jiří Hadaš with the kind support of Klub Kultury Uherské Hradiště. The Magic Festival is held under the guarantee of The Czech Magic Union and The Union of Moravian Magicians.

During three years we introduced a lot of professional and amateur magicians not only from Czech Republic but also from Slovakia, Austria, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia, Germany and France.

We were inspired by successful magic exhibitions in 1979-1989 in Uherské Hradiště. Many of us has been influenced by escopology of Miroslav Svoboda. He escaped from straitjacket hanged on a burning rope.  Fakir Ben Gham (Zdeněk Zahrádka) maked a new record in the laying on nail bed for 24 hours. The best and unforgettable show with Arabela sold out Slovácké theatre for five times.
