Wizard Worthy Events

Whether you identify with team Slytherin, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw, you have one thing in common: your love for Harry Potter. This summer, let that fascination take flight through multiple Harry Potter-themed events happening throughout the Cincinnati area.

Solve puzzles to escape Azkaban in the Escape from Azkaban event on Friday, July 21st from 6 to 8 PM.

Learn to play quiddich with the Indoor Quiddich League on Monday, July 24th from 5 to 7:30 PM.

Within 60 seconds, complete deceptively simple games to emerge victorious in Harry Potter Minute To Win it taking place on Saturday, July 29, from 2 to 3 PM.

On Wednesday, July 26, from 3 to 5 PM, kids even have the chance to attend a real life Hogwarts, getting assigned into their house, practicing magizoology, and competing for the quiddich cup at Explorer’s Camp: Welcome to Hogwarts!

If your kid is a “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” fan as well, Fantastic Beasts of the Harry Potter World will connect the two, giving kids a chance to meet real life raptors presented by Raptors, Inc. This opportunity will unfold on Thursday, July 27th from 2 to 3 PM.

As if this all isn’t the cherry on top of a Harry Potter fan’s summer dreams, kids are also invited to celebrate Harry Potter’s birthday with Hogwarts-themed treats and creatures at two July 31st events: Harry Potter Birthday Celebration (with owls!) from 2 to 3 PM, and Happy Birthday Harry Potter! from 5:30 to 7:30 PM.
