Really depends on where you live.

Some base rates in Toronto are 300$ for a birthday (Around 45min) and 500$ per hour for walkaround.

Best bet is to ask other magicians in your area.

Those Toronto rates would get you ZILCH here in Ohio. Our rates are more like $150 for a party and $200 for walk around. The best thing to do is go to your local ring meeting and talk to the local working magi. Either that or call up some of the local entertainers and act like a customer. Tell them that you are getting prices to decide who to use.

I think that was exactly my point! It's very different everywhere. And of course those prices arent set in stone. Each event may differ.

But if you have been performing for a number of years for friends and family, realize you're probably worth something :)
