Calling all witches and wizards! If you've ever longed to venture into the world of one of your favourite fantasy stories, now is your chance.

Hosted by York-Durham Heritage Railway, the Wizards Festival is taking place from October 2 to October 4, 2020.

The event will feature some riddikulusly magical attractions, such as interactive shows, potions classes, and an Enchanted Alley to explore.

You can watch magic shows, adventure through a Horcrux maze, and even learn how to protect yourself against a dark enemy. 

You'll want to pay attention in this defence class because premium ticket holders will have to battle it out on the Hallows Express. 

The train will sweep witches and wizards away to GOODWOODORA Prison, and the journey reveals that two evil wizards are plotting to escape.

It's up to you to help transport the prisoners to a more secure location.

No Muggle attire is permitted at the festival, so make sure you come dressed in your finest robes. You don't want to end up in detention, after all.

YDHR informed Narcity that extra safety measures have been put in place this year. The trains will run at 50% capacity, and masks and social distancing will be enforced.

There will also be hand sanitizing stations set up across the grounds.

You can also hop on board this historic steam train in Ontario that will make you feel like you're on the Hogwart's Express. 

Leave the Muggle world behind and indulge in some magic at this fantastical Wizards Festival.
