Menus

Leviosa features five meal events over the course of the weekend, including the Welcome Feast, two keynotes, a VIP Cocktail party and the Leaving Feast. Menus are now set, and we wanted to share so our attendees can make plans–or maybe even purchase a ticket to something, if you haven’t already! And don’t forget: the Welcome Feast is included with all Standard and VIP Registrations.

Please note that those with special dietary needs, as indicated on your registration form, will be taken into account–if you don’t see something you can eat here, the kitchen will prepare a special plated meal.
