Dear Mr/Ms. Family Fun Canada Reader,
- We are pleased to inform you that you have been invited to the Harry Potter Festival and Quidditch Tournament in Chestnut Hill, PA. Please find enclosed a list of details.
- Festivities begin on 21 October. We await your owl.
The town of Chestnut Hill is reborn as Hogsmeade, October 21 and 22, 2016 for the Harry Potter Festival!
The weekend is prefaced by a Harry Potter Conference at the Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia, if you are so inclined. There will be a pub crawl on the 21st for the older Potter fans (tickets go on sale Sept. 28th) and even the transportation authority is getting on-board, with one of the SEPTA trains being converted into the Hogwarts Express! Then there’s the Quidditch Tournament, and we haven’t even gotten to the Defense Against the Dark Arts classes, the Sorting Hat Demonstrations, rides on the Knight Bus, or the kid friendly fun at Jenks Academy of Witchcraft & Wizardry!
If you’ve been planning a trip to Philadelphia, the Harry Potter Festival might just be the perfect weekend to get there! For more information, you can visit the Chestnut Hill website, or the Harry Potter Weekend Facebook page.
