There's a magical Harry Potter themed festival and train ride near Toronto this fall

Jul 31 2019, 2:51 pm

Grab your robes and broomsticks, muggles, because a Harry Potter themed festival is crashing its broom just outside of Toronto this fall.

The one-day-only event will bring the Wizarding World to life through interactive shows, potions classes, a maze, magic shows, and workshops on how to defend yourself against the Dark Enemy.

And it’s that workshop that will encourage you to opt for the premium ticket option, because you’ll get an opportunity to use what you learn.

Post-festival, premium ticket holders will hop onto the Hallows Express, where a journey to GOODWOODORA Prison will lead to a mission involving the transport of evil sorcerers.

If you want to be a part of the train ride, the magic mission, and all the whimsical fun leading up to it, you can get your ticket now.

And ensure you come in costume — you don’t want anyone to know if you’re a secret muggle walking among the crowd.

The event is family-friendly, and there will be a 19+ area where you can get your fill of wizards’ brew, too.

Three cheers for Butterbeer!
