LISTEN UP, POTTERHEADS!  A Harry Potter-inspired festival is coming back to YEG this fall, and it’s better than ever.

The Festival of Witchcraft and Wizardry is coming back to the Fringe grounds in Edmonton this October.  The event bills itself as:

“A day of magic, spells and fantasy to celebrate our love of #witches and #wizards everywhere. We will have Buttery Beer and Pumpkin Juice, rides on the #Magical Express, Potions Class, Care of Magical Creatures, Defense against the Dark Arts, #Quidditch, Dragon Alley market, a magical photo booth, a quiz all about the wizarding world, magical movies, and lots of your favourite characters.”


I talked with the organizer Mel (who has a wonderful witch cackle I might add) to find out more about this beautiful event:
