As organizers we haven't been this excited about news in relation to Atlanta's annual WIZARD'S BALL (18+) since the event sold out it's first edition back in 2014 (and each year since actually). Although we've had a venue secured for several months with The Masquerade and it's new location in downtown, this week we were offered exclusive access to a different area that could NOT be more perfect for a large scale wizard-themed event like Markster Con's WIZARD'S BALL.
This space we speak of is the current vacant "underground" portion of Underground Atlanta (sneak peak cell phone picts below). This amazing, open space will offer us great potential in really indulging in the whole Potter-esque "dark wizard" feel and giving attendees an immersive, one-of-a-kind party experience. The space, offered to us by The Masquerade's management, is secured to the outside public, offers many amazing photo opps, has an attached parking deck and will allow us to both expand the event and also give attendees to the Nov. 18th event an experience like no other. Store fronts, street signs, lots of brick walls, and actual streets (all indoors)! Check out the picts below but note these were taken with a cell phone (low quality and light) with no wizard-themed props or decorations.
If you haven't secured your tickets yet we suggest you do via http://mcp.xorbia.com – there is also a "Combo" option (21+) to both the Nov. 18th WIZARD'S BALL and previous night's POTTER PUB CRAWL (21+) in Atlanta's Virginia-Highland. In addition to both of those events here are SEVEN (7) Potter-inspired events happening in both Atlanta and Athens in October and November - click HERE for more info.
