That magical Harry Potter-themed Wizards Brunch is still happening in Vancouver


Remember the promise of a pop-up Harry Potter-themed Wizards Brunch working its weekend morning magic on Vancouver?

For those who were ready to submit their tuition for Hogwarts back in January when we first got word of the event, patience with a pinch of faith, has been the recipe for a spell to tide us all over until the event materialized.

Promised for summer, we’re just now learning the Wizards Brunch is still real, and tickets will be released Tuesday, October 2, 2018, to those who signed up for the waiting list.

Organizers, aka “Team Wizard,” sent out the following info via e-mail:

“Tickets will go on sale today at 3:30pm, a link will be emailed to you.

We only have very limited capacity so remember these are strictly first come, first served!

Keep your eyes peeled to our socials and your inboxes for full details of the event, ticket releases and more!”

Those who manage to land tickets to “a brunch like no other,” will get to enjoy unlimited butter beer, Quidditch matches, sorting ceremonies, and wand lessons, and the chance to hang and eat brunch with “some of your favourite Hogwarts and crew” in the Great Hall.

Dates and times, however, remain shrouded in mystery.

The Wizards Brunch is put on by the same Australian-based team who organized the Hot Tub Cinema (which did happen,) the Mean Girls Brunch (which did not happen in Vancouver), and the “Lego” Bar (which also did not happen in Vancouver).

We’ve reached out several times to event organizers for comment, and have not received a reply.
