A community in Ontario is about to get invaded.

CENTRE WELLINGTON, ON – This Halloween, a new festival is appearing in Centre Wellington. The OWOW Ontario Week of Wonder Magic Festival is a seven-day celebration of magic and magicians held downtown Fergus and online. The festival runs October 24-31 with live events featuring world-renowned magicians who’ve appeared on Netflix, America’s Got Talent, YouTube and theatre tours.

“You’ll see we have an unbelievable line-up of world-class magicians and a few surprises up our sleeve,” says festival organizer and magician, Ryan Joyce. “Centre Wellington is the perfect location for a magic festival, to celebrate the art while looking for ghosts and zombies.”

For thirty-one days and nights, monsters take over the township during Sensational Elora’s festival of Halloween and art called Monster Month.

Perhaps the same magical force calling the monsters may have signalled the magicians.

“Magical rumours are swirling around the community!” says Deb Dalziel, Township Tourism and Destination Coordinator “We look forward to our new visitors!”

Live festival events are centred around the Fergus Grand Theatre but magic can be discovered around town. You will see daytime magic shows for the family, star-studded evening gala shows, late-night events, hypnotic comedy shows and magicians performing table-side at select restaurants. There are also online festival events to share worldwide.

There is one final secret to be revealed. Behind the mirrors and trapdoors are magicians learning the art of magic. “OWOW Magic Festival has events for the public and secret sessions for magicians.” Says Joyce “Festival goers are in for a treat. These are literally the magicians that magicians come to see. It’s going to be incredible!”

Elora and Fergus have recently gained international attention for its artistic community and natural beauty. “National Geographic was here recently, and film crews for television and movies are here all the time,” says Joyce. “It’s a magical place but the real secret is the townships deep connections to the world of professional magic. Canada’s largest organization for professional magicians was founded in Elora by magician Joan Caesar. We’re the most magical township in Canada.”

“There will be lots of magic and wonder! Centre Wellington is the place to be this Halloween,” says Dalziel.

Tickets are likely to disappear fast. Visit for tickets and information.
