The Wizard U event scheduled for this Saturday has been canceled due to logistical issues and has not been rescheduled.

Let’s face it — you’re never going to get that acceptance letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry you’ve been waiting for. Thankfully, there’s a new school in town.

Wizard U is a one-day crash course in how to ditch your muggle ways. From lessons in transfiguration to curse casting and potion brewing, Wizard U unites Potter fans and magic believers so they can celebrate the wonderful, wizarding world of Hogwarts and beyond right here at home. It doesn’t matter if your wand is fashioned from phoenix feathers or unicorn hair, and no one cares where the sorting hat said you belong — at Wizard U everyone is invited.

Wizard-U event begins at noon on Saturday, June 16 at the Crofoot; 1 S. Saginaw St., Pontiac; 248-858-9333; thecrofoot.com; Tickets are $20-$25.
