Harry Potter foodies get ready because the event of your dreams is coming to life. The second annual Potter in the Park is hosting a Triwizard Food Truck Tournament at 11 a.m. on Sat., June 23 at Roger’s Park in Sparta, Michigan.  

Each truck participating in the tournament will be put into a house – Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw. In each house at least one truck will sell Butterbeer and participants will be able to vote at a both on which house has the best Butterbeer.

All the trucks will have a Harry potter inspired menu specifically designed for the event. One of them has even hinted at a Butterbeer doughnut. At the end of the event they will tally up the sales for each house and whoever made the most will be crowned the winner of the tournament.  

Potter in the Park starts at 3 p.m. Tickets for Potter in the Park includes access to stage performances, Quidditch training, rubber duck racing, herbology and more.

So get your belly ready Potterheads!
