Barnes and Noble Stores Are Making Your ‘Harry Potter’ Dreams Come True

There are still plenty of reasons why being a “Harry Potter” fan is just as great as it ever was in 2016. Not only is there “The Cursed Child” play to look forward to, there’s also the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” film series that is keeping the wizarding world alive and well.

Now that the holiday season is upon us, you’re likely to have a number of holiday parties already on your calendar. But there’s a newly scheduled event to add to your list, and, trust me, this one is not to be missed!

As Bustle points out, Barnes and Noble stores are set to host “Harry Potter” Magical Holiday Balls all across the nation! So, put on your Hermione-est dress and get ready to dance the night away!

Events will take place on Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. local time all across the country. According to the Barnes and Noble website, this event was inspired by the Yule Ball (just as you were hoping!) and will include crafts, games and “spellbinding surprises.” Sign us up!

If you wouldn’t miss this for the world—and you know you wouldn’t—go ahead and check out a full list of participating locations here. There’s bound to be one near you!

Also, in case you’re wondering about attire, you are encouraged to dress up! So, don’t be afraid to slip on something fancy and full live out your Harry Potter Yule Ball fantasies.


According to a press release, this is something that’s fit for the whole family. So, get everyone all dressed up, young and old. All Potter fans are welcome. All that’s left to do now is count down the days ‘til the big ball!

Forget the NYE party you’re attending, this will surely be your new favorite event of the winter season!
