The Rocky Mountain Session

The Rocky Mountain Session was founded by William Rader in 2016 after Magic in the Rockies ended after 20 consecutive years. This yearly magic session is devoted to sharing ideas, routines, and techniques to grow our art. It takes place over three days on the second weekend of September.

The Rocky Mountain Session is limited to 80 attendees to keep the sessions intimate so that you can hang out with your favorite performers. We welcome all skill levels as long as you have a sincere interest in growing our art.

Activities during the Rocky Mountain Session include lectures, shows, and a dealers room. The lecturers are often underground performers that excel in their craft. You don’t want to miss the shows which include an attendee show, a gala show, and a one man show.

The dealers room focuses on magic that you can purchase directly from the creators. Past dealers include Craig Osterling, Kainoa Harbottle, Curtis Kam, Marcus Eddie, Joe Anderson, Dave Neighbors, and Todd Lassen.

“The Rocky Mountain Session is everything I like best in a convention; a small, semi-secret gathering where talented artists and dedicated crazy people can share and learn. My only regret is that once people find out how good it is, it won’t stay much of a secret.”
