2nd Annual Harry Potter Birthday Party

July 29
12-8 p.m.
Barhopping, Family Events, Festivals, Food and Drink, Literary

Hop on your Nimbus 2000 and head over to Northgate, where the Northeast brewery will be taking a page from Hogsmeade and welcoming wizards and magical creatures. During the day there will be games and hands-on fun for all ages, including a coloring station, a photobooth, and Quidditch beer pong (okay, that last one is just for adults). Try some sweets from Honeydukes, practice divination and potion making, and test your knowledge of the wizarding world during trivia. The Gryffindorks Greater Twin Cities of MN HPA Chapter will be in attendance, as will screen print artists and food trucks. A costume contest with prizes will be held at 8 p.m. Order up a pint of brew or a non-alcoholic Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Beer and feel the spell of the event take hold.
