Harry Potter fans, get ready. Pitman’s getting its own Potter Festival!

mapThe magic of the Wizarding World arrives this fall for the first ever Pitman Potter Festival beginning on Friday, October 20, and continuing through Saturday, October 21, 2017.

The festival begins on Friday evening at 6 p.m. with a showing of Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone at the Broadway Theatre of Pitman.

The festivities continue Saturday, October 21, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a variety of activities for all ages including a Sorting Ceremony in the Pitman Grove Auditorium, a Defense Against the Dark Arts Class at Sunset Auditorium, magical entertainment at Ballard Park in Uptown Pitman, and much more! Many Pitman businesses are joining in the fun and offering themed menus, activities, and items.

The Pitman Gallery & Art Center will be hosting its themed exhibit “Harry Potter” and will be raffling a signed, framed print from the published illustrator. The Pitman Gallery & Art Center is also planning some enchanting Saturday evening entertainment, details to be announced shortly.

While some of the activities will be offered free of charge, a $5 wristband will be required to enter the main events. The sale of wristbands will be limited so that it is a fun event for all! Wristbands will go on sale this Saturday, July 29, 2017, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Pitman Gallery and Art Center, 59 S. Broadway, Pitman, New Jersey.

The Pitman Potter Festival is a non-profit event run by volunteers. All proceeds will benefit the Greater Pitman Chamber of Commerce, the Pitman Gallery & Art Center, and McCowan Memorial Library. Warner Bros. Entertainment and J.K. Rowling are not associated with or responsible for the festival in any way and we hope they won’t send us to Azkaban for expressing our enthusiasm!
