If you hadn’t noticed already, pop culture inspired parties are very popular. There’s something about dressing up and stepping into an IRL RPG-like world where you down cocktails named after cultural touchstones and quote things in badly imitated voices without getting awkward stares. So Wizardfest should go down a treat.
What’s Wizardfest? Well as you may have guessed it has something to do with Harry Potter, although it’s not affiliated with the franchise in any way, taking inspiration from the iconic HP universe and touring that to various cities around Australia.
Guests will be able to roam around in their most fabulous Potter gear while drinking copious amounts of Butter Beer, Fire Whiskey, or even Transformative Potent Potion which will be flowing throughout the night. Guests are of course encouraged to come dressed up (there’s some prizes on the night) and there’s a strict policy of no underage owls, cats or toads. You’ve gotta be an of-age wizard to attend this one.
