Chestertown, Maryland, to Host Third Annual Harry Potter Festival!
Later this month, a Harry Potter-themed festival will take place in Chestertown, Maryland, for its third year! The Chestertown Harry Potter Festival, which is set for September 30 through October 2, will include both free and ticketed events for attendees of all ages, plus wizard rock performances from Draco and the Malfoys, the Blibbering Humdingers, Ashley Hamel, and Hawthorn & Holly!
The schedule of events for this year’s festival, as detailed on its official website, is not yet finalized, though planned activities include a Quidditch tournament for teams from around the Delmarva Region, a scavenger hunt, and a costume contest, all of which will be free to the public. Ticketed events are set to include a high tea event, a kids’ Hogwarts experience for witches and wizards between the ages of eight and thirteen, the 21+ event House party at the [Hog’s Head], and Nearly Headless Nick’s 524th deathday party:
To celebrate the death of Sir Nicholas, Hogwarts’ most beloved ghostly character, we will be hosting a [d]eath[d]ay [p]arty (as it occurred in […] Chamber of Secrets) at the Garfield Center for the Arts on Saturday, for all ages. Refreshments and food will be sold at the bar, as well as complimentary snacks served by staff during the event. There will be dancing, trivia, and even ‘Pin-the-head-on-the-Nearly-Headless-Nick!’
In addition, the event organizers are holding open auditions for those who would like to participate in their Street Theatre skits, as well as those who would like to participate in the “Stump the Hermiones” trivia event:
