Miami casinos aren’t traditionally known for their family oriented entertainment venues, but on Saturday, February 21, Magic City Casino will be hosting a very special event for all ages. The Magic & Music Festival will get underway at 12:00 noon, bringing food, fun and entertainment to the streets of Miami.
Curbside entertainment will begin at noon and last until 10:00pm outside Magic City Casino, located at 450 NW 37th Avenue, with the Wheelin’ Dealin’ Food Street Festival. A variety of street performers will be present, along with some of the area’s most prevalent food trucks serving up fine fare throughout the day.
What would a fun-filled Magic and Music Festival be without multiple free performances from celebrated artists? The musical acts begin with Jefferson Starship performing in the Miami casino’s Sky 7-37 outdoor lounge. The free concert will begin at 1:00pm.
Then, at 5:30pm a trio of performances will take center stage in the Magic City Amphitheater as Sweet, The Romantics and Naked Eyes will all be performing their greatest hits. Front row stage seating is available for $75 per ticket. All other seating is free on a first come, first serve basis.
Topping off the evening will be an extraordinary show at Magic City Casino in which renowned illusionist Franz Harary and a special performance by 2x Grammy Award winner Sheena Easton will take place. This is the only event on the schedule that is not free to the public. Tickets run $125 a piece, but with only 300 seats available in the Stage 305 arena, a full drinks and dinner package included, and a once-in-a-lifetime close-up interactive encounter with Harary, it’s well worth the price.
The Harary/Easton performance will begin at 8:00pm and is also open to all ages. Each table accommodates up to 8 guests, so if you plan to attend this special performance, especially with a group of people, it’s highly recommended to purchase tickets for the event as soon as possible.
