What's the usual rate for hiring a magician?
For events such as birthday parties, magicians will often offer an hourly rate or may perform a packaged birthday magic show for a set fee.

My research this morning shows that a magician typically costs $150 to $500 per hour. A birthday show lasting on average 30 to 45 minutes can typically costs $175 to $350.

The services that should be offered by any magician should include set-up and take down of equipment, should be able to work with the amount of kids or adults in the party and keep their interest, as well as make the guest of honor special among all the guests attending.
