Events Roundup: Attend Comic-Con from Home, Go to the Movies, and Enjoy a “Harry Potter” Drag Brunch
Welcome back to your regularly scheduled Events Roundup! This week, we have updates about comic conventions, where you can go to watch a couple of the Harry Potter movies (in case you don’t already have them all on DVD), and a drag queen brunch. Let’s get started.
San Diego Comic-Con@Home
Many annual activities this year have fallen victim to cancelations thanks to COVID-19. We mentioned previously that San Diego Comic-Con had both been canceled and reinvented this year. We wanted to remind you that the famed convention is being hosted completely online this year. If you’re planning to attend, all you’ll have to do is register with the website and log on for the events you want to see. Comic-Con@Home will be available for free to the public from July 22 to July 26. A full schedule and virtual attendees are now posted.
Dragon Con Virtual Convention
For the first time in its 34-year history, Dragon Con will also be happening in a virtual space. In a Twitter announcement, Dragon Con organizers made it known that the convention “will be free to the universe” to attend. It’s scheduled to be held from September 3 through September 7. Information about who is making an appearance and how you can attend have yet to be released. Be sure to keep your ears open to any new updates and check out the FAQ page for more details.
Harry Potter Drag Brunch
Glad Day Bookshop in Toronto, Canada, is hosting an event for the ages. Performers dressed as Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy will be your hosts for the event. Brunch will be served for those with regular, gluten-free, or vegan diets. Ticket prices range from free to $25, depending on if you’re just watching the show, eating, or both. Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 8 at 11:30 a.m. and get ready for a great show.
Harlequin Theatre Opening with Harry Potter Screening
Going to the movies is the perfect pastime for any weekend. Thankfully, we’ll be able to go soon enough. The Harlequin Theatre in Redhill, United Kingdom, will be open to the public, following government guidelines, of course, and will begin showing Hollywood’s biggest hits. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets will be on the list, along with The Greatest Showman and Bohemian Rhapsody. Tickets are just £5 for the general public and free for essential workers through the rest of July. Times, tickets, and shows are all posted on the Harlequin Theatre’s website.
That’s it for this week’s Events Roundup. Thanks for tuning in, and we will see you again soon! Have a happy weekend and stay safe.
