If you’ve seen and loved the Harry Potter films, you’ve probably dreamt of attending the majestic Yule Ball. Well, starting November 25, you are invited to a unique dance party – “Harry Potter: A Yule Ball Celebration” – which will transform Montreal’s Salon 1861 into a wondrous wintertime gala honoring the iconic Triwizard tradition.
This spellbinding soirée will allow guests to participate in beloved moments inspired by J.K. Rowling’s magical stories and scenes from the 2005 film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Engaging hosts will get the ballroom going with fun interactions happening throughout the entire experience.
Although not mandatory, guests are encouraged to dress up in their best formal Wizarding World attire.
With the many different offerings at the Ball, such as various photo opportunities, you don’t even need to know how to dance in order to partake in the experience and have a great time.
Throughout the event, attendees can enjoy delicious food and beverages, as well as a market featuring branded merchandise.
For a limited time, Salon 1861 – a beautiful Little Burgundy church converted into a full service event hall – will light up in an enchanting environment that promises to bring Harry Potter fans and curious guests together in a Yuletide celebration to remember.
