Events Roundup: A “Harry Potter” Weekend and a “Fantastic Beasts” Halloween Spooktacular

As we head toward fall, we can look forward to cozy evenings with a mug of hot cocoa and a Harry Potter film alongside these exciting upcoming Potter-inspired events.


Harry Potter Weekend

Head to the Creature Conservancy in Ann Arbor, Michigan, between September 23 and 25 for a weekend of Potter-inspired fun.

The Harry Potter Weekend includes two adult Harry Potter trivia nights with beer and wine, and a family event that will feature a Harry Potter–themed animal presentation. The previously scheduled family Harry Potter trivia night was canceled due to a lack of interest.

Daniel Radcliffe’s Panel at New York Comic Con

On October 9, Daniel Radcliffe and Al Yankovic will be at New York Comic Con talking about their upcoming film, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.

The stars will be there alongside Radcliffe’s co-star Evan Rachel Wood and the film’s director, Eric Appel, and they will talk about the “outrageously epic” film, which is set to hit streaming on November 4.


ROM After Dark: Fantastic Beasts

Taking place at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on October 28 is ROM After Dark: Fantastic Beasts, a “Halloween spooktacular” event that also includes access to the exhibition Fantastic Beasts: The Wonder of Nature.

This is one of the museum’s popular after-hours ROM After Dark social events that are taking place over six Friday evenings in the coming six months. The events feature performances and music, gallery access, and a night out with a selection of themed refreshments and food.

The event is for those aged 19 and over, and tickets, which can be booked online, cost $30, with ROM members getting 10% off.
