A Wizard's Christmas Dinner & Marketplace in Louisville

A Wizard's Christmas Dinner & Marketplace is coming to the Louisville Palace December 16th-18th. This event is for wizards of all ages, and it sounds pretty fun. You can come in dressed up as your favorite wizarding character or just dress casually. According to World of Wizarding, here's what you can expect from this dinner:

The Wizarding community has come to you. Experience magic like never before in the new wizarding school, Alabaster School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. With all new houses inspired by the fan favorite wizarding movie franchise.

Join us for this inspired Wizard Experience as we open our doors to new students for the start of the year orientation. Be the first to get an exclusive look into the new magical school coming to North America, Alabaster School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Meet your teachers, shop in our magical alley, and enjoy a 4-course meal with your loved ones for the holidays.  

Partake in an interactive and magical performance while you dine with our wizarding professors. 

General Admission includes access to the experience, one seat reservation, and one of their three-course meal selections. You can also take advantage of the Magical Creatures VIP Experience.
