WHAT HAPPENS AT POTTERCON?

Check back often as hosts, times, and new events are added.


Sorting Ceremony

Are you brave, loyal, witty, or cunning? Throw your name into the Goblet of Fire to find out. If the Goblet chooses you, you'll don the Sorting Hat on stage and answer the hat's personality questions. Your fellow first-years will choose your fate (with a little wisdom from our resident Dumbledore).




Costume Contest

Master gave Dobby a sock! Dobby is free to dress as he chooses!! Wear your most inspired digs and you could win some witchy prizes and bragging rights for years to come. Enter at the Costume Contest booth and prepare to show off your robes on stage during Madam Malkin's Robes For All Occasions Fashion Show. $5 per entry. 100% of proceeds from the Costume Contest directly benefit 826NYC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills.

Last Year's Winners:

First Place: Luna Lovegood

Runners Up: Fleur Delacour and Hermione at the Yule Ball




In Memoriam

Raise your wand and pour out some Butterbeer as we remember the most beloved and reviled characters lost throughout the series.


Trivia (sponsored by USAopoly)

Hope you packed your Remebralls, because we'll be putting your book, movie, and franchise knowledge to the test. As per PotterCon tradition, last year's trivia winners will defend the throne with their very own set of stumpers. Gather a team of up to 6 wizards to compete to win a Harry Potter Prize Pack from USAopoly (including Trivial Pursuit: World of Harry Potter, Harry Potter Clue, and more), and remember that no cell phones or enchanted quills are allowed. If we see you cheating, our prefects will not hesitate to give you detention in the Forbidden Forest (without refund!).





House Cup

Did you throw your name into the Goblet of Fire, enter the costume contest, visit our merch tables or participate in any other magical events throughout the day? Almost everything you do at PotterCon will earn you tickets that can be used as points at our House Cup table. Will Gryffindor hold the cup again? Only you can decide!


Photo Booth

Grab your pals and stand in front of the entrance to Diagon Alley with assorted magical props. One of our prefects will be there to take your picture, so don't forget your muggle camera.

Want a magical moving photo? Download Boomerang for Instagram and ask our Prefects to give you the GIF of friendship.
