The event will feature Harry Potter gear and merchandise, photo booths, yard games, Honeydukes Sweet shop with baked goods, chocolate frogs, butterbeer popcorn, snow cones, cotton candy and more.

A Horcrux Hunt will be ongoing throughout the weekend, where all seven horcruxes will be hidden on the grounds. A sorting hat seminar and Potter Paint n Sips will take place twice a day.
