Harry Potter Festival in Chestnut Hill
A magical celebration of wizards and Quidditch
October 17-18, 2014
There will be wizardry and wonder in the air this October as Chestnut Hill transforms for the Harry Potter Festival.
On October 17-18, the Chestnut Hill neighborhood will play host to a weekend’s worth of spellbinding events that will keep children and adults — and wizards and muggles — entertained.
The popular event features familiar characters from the world of Harry Potter, special activities for fans of all ages, live entertainment, food and more. Hunt for Horcruxes, watch local colleges face-off at a Quidditch tournament and more during the magical weekend celebration. Stay tuned for more information!
Beyond flavors from the world of Harry Potter, Chestnut Hill neighborhood businesses and shops on and around Germantown Avenue also transform into familiar locales from Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade like Madam Puddifoot’s Tea Shop, Weasley’s Wizarding Wheeezes and many more.
