Magic Shows

We are excited to bring Drake Watson’s Mystic Magic Show back for 2024!!!! Stay tuned leading up to festival for this year’s schedule and show information.

Coming to Stanton Old Fashioned Days all the way from New Orleans, Louisiana! As a native of Michigan, magical entertainer Drake Watson is bringing his Hometown Roots Tour back to where it all started, his home state!

Drake’s Mystic Magic Show is a whacked out blend of mystery, comedy and sleight of hand. The show is packed full of audience participation, laughter and lots of family fun, with rope tricks, card tricks, silks, colorful props and even LIVE goldfish! You especially won’t want to miss watching for one second as Drake does his straight jacket Escape in honor of Harry Houdini’s death in 1926, 96 years ago, as seen on CW Network and NBC.

The best thing about Drake’s show is that he never gets hurt…97% of the time 🤣. If you don’t see it you’ll miss it. Be sure to catch one of his performances on stage or on street throughout the Festival.

Show times and locations are scheduled to be as follows:

  • Friday from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m. on stage.
  • Saturday from 9:30 to 10:00 a.m. and from 11:30 a.m. to Noon on Main Street, and then a special hour long stage performance with balloon twisting will be from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, the last shows will be from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. on S Camburn Street and from 2:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on S Court Street.
