2017 marks the second annual Queen City Mischief & Magic (formerly Potter Party) festival in historic downtown Staunton, Virginia.
This homegrown fan event was created for the local community to celebrate and expand their appreciation for the Harry Potter books and film series.
Local businesses join in the fun and offer Harry Potter themed shopping, dining and activities for all ages. Sounds like a fun event if you are in the Staunton area Sept 22 - 24, 2017...entry is free.
Check out what event organizers have to say:
Wizards and muggles from near and far descend upon Staunton, Virginia for the annual Queen City Mischief & Magic (formerly Potter Party). With a touch of wizardry, the historic downtown is transformed into the village of Hogsmeade.
Local businesses reinvent themselves offering Harry Potter themed shopping, dining and hands-on activities for all ages. “Potterheads” can experiment with potions at Slugs and Jiggers, enjoy butter beer at Three Broomsticks or try their hand at wild beast taming at the Magickal Menagerie.
Visitors are greeted by Norberta the Dragon, where selfies and costumes are encouraged. Unlock the secrets of Diagon Alley using our Mischief & Magic Map. Explore our walkable downtown, while taking on the task of Horcrux Hunting using the free app, Traipse, which will help you find them all... and a few treasures along the way.
Queen City Mischief & Magic is a homegrown fan event created for our local community to celebrate and grow our appreciation for the Harry Potter books and film series. Warner Bros. Entertainment and J.K. Rowling are not responsible for or affiliated with this event.
We have a full selection of Harry Potter Costumes to make this an even more memorable experience with friends and family.
