Muggles and Wizards rejoice! The 4th Annual Wizarding Weekend flies into Old Ellicott City on October 1 and 2. Expect the return of the things you love – a scavenger hunt, a costume contest, live music and Potter inspired mischief and magical treats all over town.
The hunt originates in the Wizard World corner of parking Lot D where you’ll pick up your scavenger form. Visit participating locations throughout OEC, answer an HP trivia question or locate an enchanted item, then return your form to Lot D. The grand prize winner, that receives a basket full of Harry Potter and OEC treasures, will be announced at day’s end on Sunday. Your $5 hunt fee goes to the Maryland Chapter of the National Federation for the Blind.
Don your favorite wizard, witch or muggle garb and be a part of the costume contest that continues throughout the weekend. Stop by and register at the Wizard & Witch tent in Lot D. Trophies will be awarded on Sunday at the LIttle Market Cafe stage in Lot D to the top three contestants.
New this year, Tiber Alley transforms into Diagon Alley! Discover and purchase your favorite potion and feel the magic around you!
On Saturday, plan to stay in town, grab something delicious from an OEC eatery and enjoy the special outdoor movie showing of Harry Potter & the Chamber Secrets in the Wine Bin parking lot starting at 7 PM.
This event is brought to you by The Flower Barn and Little Market Cafe and benefits the National Federation for the Blind.
