The most magical event of the year, the Harry Potter Yule Ball, is BACK

Written by

On Saturday night, join your fellow witches and witches of Hogwarts in the joyous holiday celebration known as The Yule Ball. Harry Potter fans remember well when Harry asked Cho Chang to the dance, but she already had a date, and Ron was sent ancient, smelly dress robes and was super jelly of Hermione dating Viktor Krum. DRAMZ! But you'll leave all that at the door when you enter the Bell House, grab a glass of Butterbeer (yes, it will be there!) and hit the floor to jump along to wizard rock bands. 

Longtime band Harry and the Potters, made up of brothers Paul and Joe DeGeorge (whose onstage personas are Harry Potter Year 7 and 4, respectively), are known as the godfathers of the wizard rock musical genre. They sing original songs like "Save Ginny Weasley" and "Phoenix Tears," and they've inspired the creation of many other magical bands. This year, Draco and the Malfoys and Tonks and the Aurors will perform, with a special show from internet sensation, The Potter Puppet Pals. Tickets are $20, and $5 of each sold will go to the nonprofit Harry Potter Alliance.
