Champaign, Ill. (WCIA)
In collaboration with The Venue CU, Pan and Cake Catering Co. will be preparing a feast for the Great Hall after guests are sorted into their houses on their arrival. Pan and Cake is central Illinois’ premier wedding caterer specializing in upscale American gourmet, inspired by the rich midwest agricultural landscape. Pan and Cake has partnered with The Venue CU as a preferred caterer since their beginning in 2020. They are excited to bring you a great feast inspired by the kitchens of Hogwarts and Molly Weasley.
Saturday night’s event will transport you to the elegant landscape of winter at the Hogwarts castle. Grab your best dress robes and a dancing partner for a night of magical cocktails, a traditional Hogwarts Christmas feast, and a dance lesson before a night of “well-mannered frivolity” for wizards and muggles alike, 16+. Don’t forget to stop by Honeydukes or catch the trolley for your chocolate frogs and other sweet treats!
Saturday’s daytime event is an immersive wizarding experience for the whole family. Young wizards and witches will catch the Hogwarts Express at Platform 9 3/4 to join their classmates in the castle halls. Stop by Snape’s classroom to brew up a potion, grab some butterbeer at The Three Broomsticks, and brush up on those Quidditch skills before crafting your own golden snitch.
December 17th is almost sold out, and tickets will go fast for Saturday! To secure your spot, visit The Venue CU’s website to purchase tickets!
Saturday’s daytime open-house event is 12p – 4p, tickets are $25.
Saturday’s evening feast event is 6:30p – 11p, tickets are $50.
There will be a cash bar at The Three Broomsticks and goodies available at Honeydukes so bring your galleons!
