On Saturday, June 24th from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art will transform into the magical world of Hogwarts for an alumni reunion fit for a graduate from the wizarding world of Harry Potter.
Can you believe we were introduced to the spell-binding world of wonder by J.K. Rowling in 1997? In honor of the 20th year of our favorite wizard academy, you’re invited to a spirited get-together for adults, ages 18 and up.
“Whether you grew up at Hogwarts or received your Wizarding degree later on through an Owl-Order program, you are invited to our festive reunion. Each alumni will receive a special invitation and a ticket for the Hogwarts Express. (You must present your ticket to get through the barrier at Platform 9 ¾). Enjoy a feast and magical drinks in the Great Hall, accompanied by thematic music presented by a live DJ. Explore the castle and feel free to take as many pictures as you like,” says MCMA about the upcoming event. “There will be trivia games, and be sure to wear your best Wizarding gear for a chance to win prizes in the costume contest (or you can come as a muggle – non-magic folk). If you like solving riddles, we found part of an old letter to Dumbledore in the Headmistress’s office, so grab a Marauder’s Map and follow the clues; you might solve a mystery. Divination sessions will be available for an extra fee, and don’t forget to take a souvenir pint glass home with you.”
You must sign-up online ahead of time and space is limited to only 300 alumni. In fact, there are less than 75 tickets left for purchase.
There are two ways to register for this awesome event:
1. Call 770-528-1444 and ask to sign up for the Harry Potter event
2. Use a Muggle computer to go to mariettacobbartmuseum.org/potterparty
Tickets are $35 dollars. Online orders require an additional $5 processing fee.
