The Magic Weekend is a two-day seasonal Magic: The Gathering tournament / event organized by the DCI, that replaced the Store Championship (and the Game Day before that) starting with Guilds of Ravnica in 2018.[1] The event takes place in WPN-associated local game and hobby stores around the world.

The Magic Weekend is marketed as a social "innovation" event: a space for Wizards of the Coast to experiment, once per season, with new ideas, formats, and prizes. This means that the features will be new each time. The first Magic Weekend was held on November 9–11, 2018.

From Core Set 2020 onward, dedicated Magic Weekend cards are replaced by a card from the WPN promo pack, distributed at the discretion of the stores.[2]
