PotterCon Puts The Beer Back In Butterbeer

If you were disappointed that the butterbeer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme parks was non-alcoholic, you might want to start practicing your swish-and-flick. PotterCon, billed as “the official day-drinking and mingling destinations for witches, wizards, squibs and magical creatures,” is bound for Las Vegas this summer.

After events in New York City and Memphis in 2016, the gathering expanded to a handful of other cities this year—Las Vegas will be the tenth to host the boozy fan extravaganza, which lands at House of Blues inside Mandalay Bay June 25.

The interactive event features a live Sorting Ceremony, trivia, costume contests, Harry Potter-themed skits and even fortune-telling stations. While patrons at the 21+ event will have the opportunity to order some spiked potions, they’ll be wise to exhibit their best behavior—a House Cup, just like the one at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, completes the Potter party.

So, dust off your dress robes and start studying up on those spells!

Tickets to PotterCon start at $15 and go on sale April 21 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com, HouseOfBlues.Com and MandalayBay.com.
