Celebration of Mind events bring people of all ages together to share and delight in playing with puzzles, games, math and magic. As Martin Gardner said, you can learn more when you’re in a state of entrancement and that’s our guiding principle.
Large and small, formal and informal, CoM events are happening around the world. We’ve seen puzzles on the patio, sleight of hand stage magic, recreational math in retirement homes and backyard bagel parties—look for a celebration you can join!
Can’t find a CoM event near you? Get on our map by hosting one of your own! A perfect time of year is around Martin Gardner’s birthday (Oct 21st), but celebrations can happen any time. We make it easy with plenty of ideas and free resources.
Need help planning your event? We have a growing list of resources including puzzles, games, magic tricks, illusions and crafts that are free to download and use. We also have a list of talented presenters who are happy to enliven your CoM event.
