Happee Birthdae Harry!
July 28 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
We’re back with our most popular event of the year: Potter Craft Party! We have a brand new menu of magical crafts for you and your friends to create.
Each ticket grants you entry to the magical world of Harry Potter where we’ll be hosting games (for house points!), a sorting ceremony, singing Happee Birthdae to Harry (turning 39 this year!), and revealing the winner of this year’s house cup!
For the first time ever, Hobby Prodigy is running a House Cup Tournament which will run from May 1 through the end of the event on July 28. Claim your house and stay active on our social media to earn points for your house! See who will win the cup at our event on Sunday, July 28!
This year’s event features a costume contest with a prize (and points!) for the winner, so dust off your best dress robes (the ones that don’t look and smell like Aunt Tessy) and grab your friends. Dress up as your favorite character (or creature) and try to win points for your house.
Our friends from BoxLunch will be hosting a table of Harry Potter themed merchandise that can be purchased at their store (only two doors down!) To add to the fun, we’re partnering with our new friends at WitchCrafts who specialize in handmade soaps, jewelry, pens, magnets, and more! WitchCrafts will be selling Harry Potter themed soaps, pens, and magnets during the event. WitchCrafts is also available for custom commission work, and inquiries can be made on their page or at the event.
We will also be teaming up with Gypsy Artistry for this year’s event! Gypsy Artistry will be offering a craft from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Pickett! Make your very own pocket pal to complete your Newt Scamander cosplay.
