Magical Realm 2020

The Magical Realm is a non-profit, Charity Faire, designed to make the lives of our beneficiaries a little bit more magical and help them in their time of need.

The Magical Realm was just bursting at the seams with fun and laughter, cheers and enjoyment. So much so, that we had tons of it left over. So, the fairies gathered it up to store, and begged us to have at least one more! We have searched our calendars, sourced our dates, and decided to grant the wish of all our fairies and friends who had such an amazing time! We in the Magical Realm are proud to say that we will be hosting another year of faire and festivities. So, we are rounding up our entertainers, merchants, vikings, pirates and more to hoist their flags, raise their swords, and march into another year! We are pleased to invite one and all to come and visit the Magical Realm this year!”

This is a nerdy con being hosted by the anime and gaming clubs at Wayne State Campus. We hope to make this an annual event. This year we are renting one whole floor of the student center.
