Jonathan Erlandson Magic (El Dorado)

Erlandson will be in El Dorado this weekend! He first became interested in magic at the age of six, while living in California and watching a popular TV show about magic. Now he calls Little Rock home, making residence at the Maxwell Blade Theatre of Magic, where he is the featured “Close Up Show” performer. Erlandson is one of the freshest magicians to combine ‘close up magic’ with ‘mentalism,’ creating one of the most unique magic acts in the world today.

A little about .

There's a lot to celebrate in Arkansas. It's unique. Southern. Delightfully eccentric. Which is why we love every nook, cranny, cave and corner. In fact, some of our favorite things can't be found anywhere else. They're only in Arkansas. So we love them even more. The attractions we visit, the food we crave, the festivals we attend, the mountains we hike, the rivers we float, the stories we tell and the company we keep – it all adds up to one incredible state. And that familiar, meandering silhouette? Looks like home to us.
