Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Harry Potter Festival

Harry Potter Festival

Germantown Avenue in Philadelphia’s Chestnut Hill neighborhood transforms into Hogsmeade during the Harry Potter Festival. Each fall, the celebration enchants with events including a Potter Pub Crawl, an opening Sorting Hat Ceremony, a Horcrux scavenger hunt, an all-day Quidditch Tournament at Hogwarts (a.k.a. Chestnut Hill College) and classes in defense against the dark arts. Local businesses, not to mention festival attendees, costume themselves according to the magical theme.
