WIZARD & WAND TO BECOME ANNUAL EVENT POTENTIALLY DRAWING TENS OF THOUSANDS WITH A MASSIVE ECONOMIC IMPACT

 

Raleigh, N.C. (January 18, 2018) -- Whether they can recite by memory every line of J.K. Rowling’s blockbuster book series or are just discovering the wizard world for the first time, fans from across North Carolina will gather for a day-long celebration of Harry Potter.

Despite the snow, organizers of WIZARD & WAND anticipate a sold out crowd, with over 5,000 Harry Potter fans descending on Downtown Raleigh January 20, 2018. Attendees will enjoy music, magic, and revelry packed into one unforgettable Saturday including:

  • Performances by wizard rock band The Blibbering Humdingers

  • Magic by Harry Potter look-alike Shaun Jay

  • Hidden treasures and surprises across sixteen Downtown Raleigh Festival sites

  • Trivia, shopkeepers, a silent auction, and contests

  • Three after parties with the Triangle’s hottest DJs

  • Transportation courtesy of The Great Raleigh Trolley

  • Main Festival venues: Isaac Hunter’s Tavern, Market Hall, and Coglin’s

“The snow just adds to the magic,” said organizer Zack Medford. “Although this year’s event is open only to adults, we’re excited to work with the Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau to make this an annual multi-day festival for the entire family, with the potential of bringing tens of thousands of people and millions of dollars in economic impact to the Capital City.”
