Location of WIZARD'S BALL V confirmed! (30% OFF)

WIZARD'S BALL will return to last year's
space, offering up an immersive environment!
For those that attended last year's WIZARD'S BALL (4th edition) they were able to be transported into an immersive, one-of-a-kind party experience as Markster Con was given exclusive access to the currently vacant "underground" mall portion of Underground Atlanta / The Masquerade. That space was an amazing, open space that offered us the opportunity to indulge in a whole Potter-esque "dark wizard" feel and also offered up some truly great photo ops in addition to lots of room to dance, mingle and socialize.

After recently talking to The Masquerade's management and how last year's space worked out, we've been invited to return to this space! This still vacant mall space is secured to the outside public, has an attached parking deck and will allow us to both expand the event and also give attendees to the Nov. 10th event another magical experience. Store fronts, street signs, lots of brick walls, and actual streets (all indoors)!

If you haven't secured your tickets yet we suggest you do via – there is also a "Combo" option (21+) to both the Nov. 10th WIZARD'S BALL V (18+, non-smoking) and previous night's POTTER PUB CRAWL (21+) in Atlanta's Virginia-Highland.
