Springfield’s Wizarding Weekend

Travel to the Heritage School of Wizardry. No floo powder needed.

 Springfield’s Wizarding Weekend is a Harry Potter-themed event on September 28th, 2024. We’ll be transforming the Heritage Center Museum into a wonderland with opportunities to hone your spellcraft and learn about Clark County’s magical history. 

NOTE: The Heritage Center Museum will be closed from Thursday, September 26 to Tuesday, October 1 to allow our house elves to prepare for these events!

Saturday Afternoon – Open House

Festivities kick off Saturday afternoon with our Open House: Professors will welcome witches, wizards, current students and alumni alike back to the Heritage School of Wizardry. Guests will have the opportunity to get sorted into their houses, meet & greet their local owls, participate in some specialized crafts and activities, and compete for house points.

Saturday Evening – Wizards’ Ball

The fun continues on Saturday evening with our Wizards’ Ball, which is reserved for adults 18 and up. We’ll have a cash bar (for those with proper ID), candy bar, dinner, dancing, dueling and house points contests, classes, games, and more!
