Orlando Will Host A Magical FREE 'Potterversary' Celebration Later This Month
A magically fun and free night in celebration of all things Potter!
It's no chamber of secrets that love for Harry Potter has cast it's a spell over us throughout the years. If you're a super fan, you can celebrate the magic of Harry Potter at Potterversary in Orlando this June - now would be the best time to whip out that Luna Lovegood cosplay!
You'll need to don your house robes and bring out that unicorn hair wand to celebrate your house pride at the Potterversary event at Orlando Public Library. They're hosting this little Potter-fest to celebrate the 20 year anniversary since the original release of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - don't forget your broomstick!
This all-out celebration will take over the entire library, filling each floor with a theme from the Potterverse as well as different activities and experiences that will take you to different places from the series.
The 1st floor will be the Ministry of Magic, Forbidden Forest, and Hogsmeade, where you can visit the Dogwood & Deathcap Herbology Shop, partake in the sorting hat ceremony and discover your Patronus, among other arts, crafts, and vendors.
The 2nd floor is the castle herself - Hogwarts, where can test your Potterhead knowledge, make a cute pigmy puff to take home, and even participate in Escape Rooms! If you don't want to be seen, get invisible in the invisibility cloak activity.
The 3rd floor will transport you to Diagon Alley, not "diagonally" - you don't want to end up in Knockturn alley after all! Here you can create your own headline for the Daily Prophet and taste those sweet sweet Butterbeer samples.
If you want to see your future, travel up to the Divination Tower on the 4th floor, where you'll create your own divination cootie catcher, and can get a reading with Professor Trelawney as she looks to the tea leaves for answers.
No matter what house you're in and which floor you go to, you'll meet some of your favorite Hogwarts Staff on each floor. Each floor will also have spots to stop for the cutest photo ops to chronicle your adventure into the magical wizarding world of Harry Potter.
According to their website, all activities are subject to change but will be posted to the website in the event changes are made prior to the event.
