Harry Potter Convention Set for 2018 in Dallas
Wizards and Witches rejoice! Fandom of the Harry Potter universe has swelled to such incredible numbers, the folks that run the fansite Leaky Cauldron had no choice but to organize LeakyCon. Potterheads in the Ark-La-Tex should be extra excited because the convention will be held in Dallas this year!
Mischief Management, the company that runs the convention, says that tickets will be available to purchase on November 15th. August 10–12 of 2018, The Hyatt Regency in Dallas, TX will be transformed into a Diagon Alley-esque scene straight from the pages of JK Rowling's worldwide blockbuster series. All types of potions, wands, robes and more will be on sale.
No special guests have been announced yet, but it's a fair bet it will be stocked with stars and the behind the scenes magicians that made one of the best literary fantasy worlds ever created come to life on the silver screen. The past guests have been stellar, bringing the likes of Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Dan Folger (Jacob Kowalski, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) and Katie Leung (Cho Chang) to the fans.
Tickets will range from $59 for a one day pass, to $349 for a "Marauder Pass." which will net you a celebrity autograph, photograph sessions, and some exclusive swag as well.
To make things better, the world Quidditch Championship will also be held in Texas next year. 2018 is shaping up to be a magical year in the Lone-Star State.
