Queen City Mischief and Magic Festival
Early each fall, the nearby town of Staunton, VA transforms to host the Queen City Mischief and Magic Festival, a city-wide celebration of all things Harry Potter! What began as a relatively small gathering of Potter fans and a number of enthusiastic local businesses has become a “homegrown fan event” that attracts thousands of visitors each year. Come get sorted into your house and join in some of the many Potter-themed activities, including Quiddich, Potions, wand-dueling and much more. Even the local restaurants get on board, offering wizarding-world favorites on special event menus. Costumes are encouraged, and QCMM welcomes Wizards and Muggles of all ages to participate!   https://www.queencitymagic.com/
