Wizards of the Coast is excited to announce the Magic Weekend schedule for 2011. With stops in Paris, Nagoya, Philadelphia, and San Francisco, Magic Weekend is the place to be if you're a Magic fan.

Play in tons of Magic tournaments and events for every skill level and type of player, watch top players battle for glory in the Pro Tour, and more! Go behind the scenes and meet members of the Magic Research and Development team, get your favorite cards signed, and snag some art to bring home at the Magic artist booths. Play a game in the "Champion Challenge" against R&D and luminaries from the Pro Tour Hall of Fame, find that elusive card or special souvenir at the marketplace, and hang out at special social events for players and Wizards staff.

Check out the schedule below, pack your bags with your trade binder and decks (don't forget your camera!), and tell your boss you need a few days off work. It's a weekend you won't want to miss!

More detailed information about the specific activities at each Magic Weekend will be available on as the event approaches. We can already tell you that to kick off Magic Weekend in style, the first stop in Paris will feature both a Pro Tour and a Grand Prix.
