Harry Potter fans of the Quad Cities, the Five Flags Center in Dubuque will be hosting a free Harry Potter Themed Reception in March!

In celebration of the hit stage show “Potted Potter” coming to Dubuque, the Five Flags Center is hosting a free Harry Potter-themed reception, which will include a costume contest where winners will receive tickets to Five Flags events. The reception will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4, prior to a performance of “Potted Potter.” "Potted Potter" is a hilarious Harry Potter parody that will make its debut in Dubuque following the reception that evening.

“Potted Potter” combines all seven Harry Potter books into a 70-minute show that includes a live game of Quidditch and a fire-breathing dragon. The show has played to audiences around the world. The Five Flags performance is one of the only Midwest dates on its current North American tour.

Those attending the Harry Potter themed reception will be able to sort themselves into the various houses. Patrons will be able to enjoy Harry Potter-themed snacks and drinks. Costumes at the reception are encouraged, with prizes awarded to those wearing the best costumes.

The Harry Potter themed reception begins at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4, and will last until the performance of “Potted Potter” beginning at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for “Potted Potter” are currently on sale at both the Five Flags Box Office and online through FiveFlagsCenter.com.
