Downtown Aurora Magic tickets to go up in May

Apr 19, 2018 12:29PM

DOWNTOWN AURORA -​ ​Ticket prices for the Downtown Aurora Magic Festival will go up after an in person sale on May 4 at the Food Truck Festival. 

Tickets will increase from $10 to $15 on May 5.

Ticket sales for the follow-up to the wildly successful Aurora’s Harry Potter Festival began on March 24. The early-bird price of $10 will be available until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, May 4. On May 5, the ticket price will increase to $15. 

Organizers cite the need to plan ahead in order to keep costs down as the reason behind the end of the early-bird discount.

“Many of our activities require a great deal of prep work from our volunteers prior to the festival. Our supplies can be ordered in bulk, lowering our costs, as long as we know how many people to prepare for,” said festival director Kate Purl. 

Ticketed guests can enjoy classes, games, entertainment, and a costume contest, along with other activities during the festival. The festival takes place on Saturday, June 9 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Tickets can be purchased online through Eventbrite at:

Tickets can also be purchased at the Food Truck Festival during downtown Aurora’s First Fridays celebration from 5 to 10 p.m. on May 4 . Visitors will be able to purchase tickets and pre-order festival merchandise at the Downtown Aurora Magic Festival table on the corner of Stolp and Benton during the annual event.
