Harry Potter-Themed Wizardfest Coming to Canton Next Month

Wizardfest, an event that celebrates all things Harry Potter, launched a U.S. tour last month that will include a stop at the Auricle in Canton on Nov. 3.

The event includes Harry Potter-themed trivia, drink specials (i.e. Butterbeer, Fire Whisky, Polyjuice Potion and Unicorn Blood), magicians, music, dancing and cosplay. The best-dressed patrons can enter into the costume contest for cash and prizes. There will even be a special Quidditch Pong Tournament.

"Wizardfest started as an idea in 2016 where we thought about transforming venues into castles with decorations, light shows, themed cocktails and incorporating all things magic into a dance party," says founder John Damiano in a press release announcing the event. "We all love the Harry Potter universe and incorporating that aspect was so much fun. Before we knew it we had sold out parties across the country. There is something for everyone... whether you like to dance, you're into magic, or just love Harry Potter."

Tickets range from $15 to $50.
