Do you want to party like they do at Hogwarts? Now’s your chance, thanks to Harry Potter-themed Wizardfest parties taking place across the United States.

The pop-up party is geared toward Potter-heads with magical drinks like Butterbeer, Fire Whisky, Polyjuice Potion, and even Unicorn Blood for those who practice the dark arts. The evening also includes Harry Potter-themed trivia, magicians, music, dancing, and cosplay. The best-dressed fans can enter a costume contest to win cash and prizes.

For Quidditch fans, there’s Quidditch Pong Tournament that rewards the best Keepers and Seekers with cash and prizes.
