Harry Potter 20th Anniversary Party

Join us for a party celebrating all things Harry Potter as we mark the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone! We have a full slate of fun activities planned for the afternoon, including: 


Before you enter the store, pay a visit to the Sorting Hat outside. There, you’ll receive your house assignment, along with a special Harry Potter name and name tag. 


Keep a sharp eye as you peruse our stacks! We’re hiding trivia questions around the shop. Return your answers for a chance to win prizes—ranging from a bag of Bertie Bott’s to a trip to the Room of Requirement.  


Celebrating with young wizards and witches? Stop by our coloring table in the front of the shop. We’ll have a variety of HP patterns awaiting your artistic flourishes.


Celebrate the boy who lived by decorating your brow with a (temporary) lightning bolt tattoo.


Still looking to fill the void you’ve felt since the last page of Deathly Hallows? Stop by our table of HP-inspired recommendations for all ages—you’re sure to find a future favorite. 

Costume Contest

Our culminating event! Join our costume parade at 3:45 p.m., to be followed by judging. Winners will receive their very own pet from the Magical Menagerie.


This ain’t our first summer in Houston. We’ll be serving up gillywater and polyjuice potion outside.
