Events and Rental Manager Alyssa Whitacre shares the history behind the annual celebration:

“He was born in Burlington, Iowa but he was raised in Monmouth. His father was a magician and a photographer, so he worked for his father’s photography business and then happened to get into magic and he toured the world. Everyone knows who Houdini was. Houdini and Nicola were competitors, direct competitors. Houdini was America’s magician. Nicola was the world’s magician and he always came right back to his hometown, Monmouth, Illinois and he would mentioned the town of Monmouth in all of his shows across the world. We want to celebrate him and continue to share his history and what he did for the magic community.”
