Go Party! 14: Willy Wonka





7 TO 10 PM


UPDATE: NOVEMBER 12 — We are now completely sold out. Thank You!!

You’re invited to enter the magical and secretive factory of eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka for an evening of art, music, and performance. This night will channel the whimsy and wonder of the classic 1964 novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, by British author Roald Dahl.


What to expect

Guests can expect to enter a colourful kingdom of pure imagination with throwbacks to the original novel and subsequent films. Enjoy the sonic backdrop created by DJ Invizible, explore the different spaces (including our art exhibitions), sample the custom drink offerings, and find out if you might be among the lucky few, who are holding onto one of the “Golden Tickets.”


Art Exhibitions • DJ Invizible • Kinshira Performance Troupe •
Wonka Cocktail Bar• Photo Op • Silent Auction
Art Activities • Prizes • and more


What to wear

Costumes and imaginative outfits are encouraged—we invite you to come in your candy-coated colourful best for this evening of fun. Other outfit ideas could be inspired by the eclectic cast of characters that inhabit Willy Wonka’s strange and magical world.


  • kind-hearted and honest Charlie Bucket
  • stubborn, elderly, and slightly paranoid Grandpa Joe
  • television-obsessed and toy-pistol toting Mike Teavee
  • spoiled and petulant Veruca Salt
  • chewing gum addicted Violet Beauregarde
  • greedy and gluttonous Augustus Gloop
  • black-and-white stripe wearing Oompa-Loompas
  • rival chocolatier, spy, and disgruntled former employee Arthur Slugworth
  • and of course, eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka himself/herself with top-hat, over-sized bowtie, cane, and suit jacket with tails
