Festival of Wizardry: 2017 (Sold Out)

ATTENTION:

Thank you to everyone for an absolutely amazing day today at the second annual
Festival of Wizardry 2017! We are so honoured and touched that so many of you
made such a long journey to be involved with the festival and are so excited you
were able to be a part of something so special to us.

Unfortunately tomorrow’s weather report is quite serious and calls for extreme high
winds (70-80km/h winds), thunderstorms and heavy rains.
With the risk of lightning the tents become unsafe and the high winds make the
entire venue dangerous due to its’ open nature.

Additionally, quidditch, the food trucks, vendors, kids area, kidditch and the selfie
park will all become unsafe and potentially dangerous due to the anticipated
weather conditions tomorrow.

As a result we are cancelling the event for tomorrow.

We know this is not what everyone wants to hear after such an amazing day but we
want to get the word out so that everyone is safe and aware of what is happening
tomorrow in the most pro-active manner we can.

Our apologies and we wish that we had a different message for tomorrow but we
are absolutely putting the safety of our guests first and foremost. Please understand
that we considered all possible options and determined for your safety we simply
had to cancel the final day of this event.

Thank you all so much for being here today and we look forward to seeing you next
year!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stay Tuned Here for More Exciting Announcements! Coming in Mid July!

Back for a second year, 2017 sees the wizarding festival return to West Ontario for another weekend of magical wizarding fun.

Ever wondered how you could play Quidditch in the non-magical world? Quidditch Canada and 7 teams from across Ontario and Quebec will be competing in a tourney to show you how. Take part in interactive demonstrations so that you can experience how it’s played. Don’t forget to bring the littles out to the Kidditch pitch to try it out too!

Live music will be playing throughout the day by three amazing Wrock bands that love Harry Potter as much as you do! Sit and relax in the grass with some magical treats as you listen to the fantastic tunes played by: The Lovegoods, Tonks and the Aurors, & Draco and the Malfoy’s, and opening for these amazing Wrock bands will be Girl Pow-r!

Skits and Actors and Theatricks, Oh My! From the big stage, to the small stage, and just about everywhere in-between you will find interactive magic and skits that will pull you into the world of wizardry! Professor’s will teach you Defence Against the Dark Arts, Potions Class, and Divination Class. Will you be picked to have your fortune told? Or to craft a love potion?  Find the actors after their skits to take selfies and roam our Selfie Park to take some great pics by our sets and props.

The Activity Station will have you learning your swishes and flicks. Come to decorate your own wand, colour a bookmark, get your face painted with lightning bolts or dark marks, and so much more!

The Fantastic Clues and Where to Find Them Scavenger Hunt and Tom’s Riddles will test your Harry Potter cleverness and bring you about town to seek out treasures and great discounts on local products. Once you’ve finished you can put your name into the Goblet for your chance to win a BIG prize.

You’ll be able taste your favourite magical treats and brews, take a stroll through our vendor tent with their wizarding shops and watch as wizard’s perform magic before your eyes.

And that’s not all! Stay tuned for another big surprise!

fundraising

Huron Food Action Network

This year, Festival of Wizardry (formerly referred to as Transfigured Town: Goderich) will be raising money for the Huron Food Action Network, a charity that does a great deal of work to create a sustainable, local food system for everybody in Huron County and beyond. It’s a great cause – and one that we feel strongly about at Transfigured Town HQ – so if you see a donation box over the course of the weekend, it’d be great if you could throw a few gnuts in. We’ll also be donating a portion of the proceeds from every ticket sold.

 

20,000
Our goal for 2017

Alas, we don’t have ravens, enchanted coins or the Wizarding Wireless Network to communicate with each other, so we’ve had to make do with emails.
