On July 30th, Kensington is going to transform itself into Diagon Alley, the wizarding world full of brilliant oddities, right here in Calgary! And this year, it will be even better. Close to 50 stores will participate in this second annual event along Kensington Road and 10th Street N.W. Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy life-size chess, costume contests and purchase a vast array of Harry Potter paraphernalia.
A few exciting stops on the Marauders Map include Pulcinella Calgary transformed into Florean Fortescue, serving butterbeer ice cream and donuts, Container Bar as Spinner’s End offering Polyjuice potion punch and sorting hat cocktails, and Crave Cookies and Cupcakes reinvented as The Common Room offering house crest-snitch cupcakes. Participants can escape from St. Mungos and Azkaban rooms at Kensington’s newest escape room, Trapped Calgary.
As for parking, the Sunnyside LRT station will act as the infamous Platform 9 ¾. Attendees can purchase limited edition Harry Potter Transit day passes at the Calgary Transit Customer Service Centres 125 7 Ave SE (Centre Street Station) and 234 7 Ave SW.
