Harry Potter Birthday Week Celebration

Join us in celebrating Harry Potter’s birthday with an entire week of fun at the Birthplace! Come for a specialized Harry Potter themed tour and test your knowledge of the book that kicked off the series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Participants will walk away with a certificate and their very own “chocolate frog” treat after completing the tour.

We will have Harry Potter themed merch and Butterbeer for sale. Each day, participants will have to find the “Sorcerer’s Stone” in a different spot in the historic home where Walt was born as well as “Find Harry!”

$5 per person (adults, children, and seniors pay the same price)

Harry Potter tours start at 11:30am and run on the hour with the last tour at 3:30pm.
(Tour Times: 11:30am, 12:30pm, 1:30pm, 2:30pm, 3:30pm)

Date: Sunday, July 28, 2024
