It’s the most wonderful time of the year – for Potterheads, anyway. Harry Potter’s birthday (July 31) marks the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two at the Assiniboine Park (the party starts June 30) – and trust me, this party is going to be bigger than the Yule Ball, bigger than the Weasley Wedding (with significantly less Death Eaters) and way bigger than the Slug Club Christmas Party. The best part? Entry is completely free! Have your fortune read in the Divination Tower, learn about Magical Creatures, free an elf at the Free Elf Sock Toss, or shop curious goods in Diagon Alley.

Don’t forget to head to McNally Robinson prior to the party date to purchase your book voucher, which can be exchanged at the event for a copy of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two!

What to Bring

Book voucher
