New location for WIZARD'S BALL III announced

Atlanta WIZARD'S BALL event producer Markster Con has received numerous inquiries wondering where the 3rd annual event be hosted on Nov. 19th, since reports have surfaced of THE MASQUERADE's imminent closing. The venue was sold in 2015 and is currently being redeveloped into high-end apartments and retail, leaving many to wonder what will happen to currently booked events, like Wizard's Ball and the Dec. 10th Star Wars themed Bash Of The Empire VI.

Thankfully, we can finally announce that even though The Masquerade is "closing" (it's current location) it is actually MOVING to a new location.

To find out where that venue is, as well as more details, please visit http://bit.ly/newmasq

Advanced tickets are currently available via http://mcp.xorbia.com (18+)

Talk about a truly magical weekend. Thanks to the hundreds who packed the streets of Atlanta's Virginia Highlands on Friday for the POTTER PUB CRAWL and then again on Saturday at The Masquerade's HELL for WIZARD's BALL 2. So many smiling faces, great performances, awesome vendors, talented photographers, tasty drinks and a full dance floors both nights – so many great memories. A MASSIVE thank you to all who helped with set-up, tear-down, volunteering, performing, vending and any other aspect of the these two magical events.

WIZARD'S BALL 2 has SOLD OUT! (50 days in advance)

We sure hope you already secured your tickets for Atlanta's Nov. 21st WIZARD'S BALL as event producer Markster Con has SOLD OUT the magical event – with 50 days still to go!

Organizers been regularly updating fans (via Facebook, twitter and instagram) of how tickets sales were progressing so hopefully everyone that wanted to get a ticket was able to.  Last year's WIZARD'S BALL sold out 'night of' but due to so many happy attendees wanting to return and Markster Con pairing the Wizard's Ball with the previous night's POTTER PUB CRAWL on Nov. 20th, it ended up being a magical combination (as the POTTER PUB CRAWL has also sold out after going viral).

Don't despair though as organizers will still give out a handful of tickets to the Nov. 21st WIZARD'S BALL at the Oct. 21st BACK TO THE FUTURE Party (when Marty goes into the future), as raffle prizes for the BTTFatlanta.com TEAM FOX charity drive -– just $1 per raffle entry! (with 100% of proceeds going towards Parkinson's Disease research)

Amazing. Truly amazing. When event producer MarksterCon.com decided to host the WIZARD'S BALL several months ago, the actual outcome far surpassed the dream. A massive THANK YOU to the 20+ volunteers who helped with set-up, the performers & entertainers (Radio Cult, DJ Seraph, DJ Ghost, Echo and Marilyn), the hard-working bartenders, the vendors & fan tables, the photographers, the sponsors, Girls Of The Con, the staff at The Masquerade and all of you who both helped promote the event and also showed up to party with your fellow wizards. The evening was truly amazing because of ALL of you and both MarksterCon.com and Dragon Fire Events truly appreciate you sharing your evening with us.
