Events Roundup: Virtual Discussions, Muggle Parties, and “Potter” Quizzes
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and for us here at MuggleNet, that doesn’t mean flowers or chocolates. It means more Harry Potter and all things magical! Okay, maybe we can have a few flowers here and there, but as long as there’s some magic nearby, we’re happy. With that in mind, let’s get started on this week’s Events Roundup.
Hogwarts Professors Quiz
How well do you know the professors of your favorite school? Probably much better than you know your own teachers. Prove your knowledge with the Ultimate Hogwarts Professors Quiz. This event will take place online on Friday, February 12 at 9:00 p.m. PST. Be sure to brush up on all things Dumbledore, McGonagall, and Snape and prove you know the professors of Hogwarts as well as you think you do. Winners of the quiz will take home a special Hogwarts-themed prize. Registration is free and open now. Check out the event website for more information.
Have you ever thought about the social issues throughout the wizarding world? Perhaps you have some ideas about how witches and wizards around the world can create a better community. Then join a conversation of like-minded wizards and Muggles to discuss what the wizarding community can do to modernize and reform. This online discussion session is free to join and will be held on Saturday, February 13 at 5:00 p.m. PST. Registration is free and open now. Be sure to check the event website for all information.
Learn to Draw Harry
Everyone needs some creative outlets now and again, especially kids. In this workshop, kids will explore the medium of paper and pencil as they learn to draw Harry himself. Kids seven years of age and older are welcome to join. Under the instruction of a professional artist, students will learn the differences between pencil types and how they differ from markers and pens when it comes to art. Tickets start at £5.44, and the workshop will be held on Thursday, February 18 at 7:00 a.m. PST. Check out the event website for more information and the Zoom link.
It’s a Muggle Party!
Gainesville, Texas, Muggles – calling all Gainesville, Texas, Muggles! It’s time for a party. Enjoy delicious treats, Polyjuice Potions, and butterbeer cupcakes. Local vendors will be at the party to serve more food. The best part is that every Muggle (or witch or wizard) who comes to the party will be able to take home a filled-up goodie bag. Masks are required to attend, and social distancing guidelines will be followed. The entrance fee is $17.50, and the event will be held on Saturday, February 20 at 9:30 a.m. CST at Combs’ Coffee in Gainesville, Texas. Check out the event website for more details.
Harry Potter Trivia
Get ready to put everything you know to the ultimate test. This virtual trivia quiz will cover the material from all the Harry Potter books and movies. Questions will come in many different forms to keep things interesting, including pictures, riddles, and so much more. A cash or themed prize will be awarded to the top team, along with lifelong bragging rights. Tickets start at $10, and the competition will happen on Wednesday, February 24 at 5:30 p.m. PST. Be sure to check out the event website for more information and the Zoom link.
