“Harry Potter” Movie Marathon and Annual Wizarding Weekend
For our first roundup of the year’s events, we have several Harry Potter–upcoming themed events, including the continuation of the 20th anniversary celebrations of Harry Potter at the Sorcerer’s Stone hitting theaters with special movie events and more.
Nerds of Marquette Holding Harry Potter–Themed event
On January 15, Nerds of Marquette is hosting a Hogwarts-themed event at Marqwarts School & Marqsmeade Market from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Campfire CoWorks in Marquette, Michigan.
There you will find a magical market where several vendors will sell Harry Potter– themed items and treats; Additionally, classes will be held including Care of Magical Creatures, Charms, Transfiguration, Potions, and more. Ashley Ross, co-founder of Campfire CoWorks, explained the reasoning behind the event.
Marquette isn’t just about the outdoors. It’s also about the people who live here, and we want to make sure everyone who lives here feels included so they want to stay.
You can also participate in the Marqball event (a dance event for Harry Potter fans) at the Barrel and Beam Brewery in the evening, from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. There will also be a silent auction of Harry Potter souvenirs made by local artists.
Proceeds from the event will go to Social Justice for Us, and tickets are available for purchase online and at the door.

Annual Wizarding Weekend
On January 29 and 30, Visit Fayetteville hosts its annual Wizarding Weekend.
The event, which will include a sorting hat ceremony, potions lessons and quidditch tournaments, will be held outdoors due to COVID-19. Tabitha Stover spoke about the exciting Quidditch event that will take place.
Quidditch… We’ll have a big tournament on Sunday. Bring a broom if you are ready. We’re trying to do one wheel quidditch, and hope to do it, but usually it’s a little wet, so our backup plan is to do it on foot, so we’re preparing for that. Anyone can get involved. We have the hoops and everything. A Snitch has been making appearances, so you want to watch out for that. This is very fun.
Everyone will join in the wizarding fun; some of the local businesses in downtown Fayetteville, WV will be turning their stores into broom shops, wand shops and more all weekend long. Sounds like a lot of fun to us.
