No matter what time of year it is, you should have no trouble finding a Harry Potter festival somewhere in Texas. Now that most of us have accepted we'll never actually get into Hogwarts, we're taking any opportunity we can to live out our Potterverse fantasies. This January, a Harry Potter event in San Antonio is taking place, one that would make J.K. Rowling herself incredibly proud. 

Wizards and Wands is taking place on Saturday, January 25 and going until Sunday, January 26 at Big Bang Bazaar in San Antonio.

From 10 a.m. on Saturday until 6 p.m. on Sunday each and every house in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is invited to celebrate their favorite book and movie series.

The event will have a pop-up gallery of stylish posters and prints inspired by the series, as well as toys and collectibles from local vendors.

You'll be able to shop until you drop and leave with the coolest merch ever.

Wizards and Wands is completely free to attend, and you don't have to worry about paying for parking either. They've thought of it all!

Costumes are not just welcomed, but encouraged. Come in your favorite Harry Potter costume and preferably in support of your house. 

Whether you're a Gryffindor or Slytherin, it's important to take pride in what the Sorting Hat chose for you. 

We can hardly wait until Wizards and Wands, which is why it's important to keep an eye on the many other Harry Potter-themed events taking place this season. There are plenty in Texas alone!

The more you hit up the better, but make sure Wizards and Wands stays at the very top of your to-do list.
